Windmills would be the least of Ocean City's aesthetic problems

developer persuaded landowners to bless his plans for more than two dozen wind turbines that would tower more than 40 stories high. But after a years-long battle with Allegheny County officials and concerned neighbors, the clear cut hilltops remain bare.

I was surprised to read that some people think that wind turbines off the shores of Ocean City would be a “tourism-discouraging eyesore” (“Maryland green energy projects stall amid protests from worried neighbors,” Dec. 24). I personally find these windmills to be very visually attractive. If you want to see eyesores in Ocean City, simply turn around and see the monstrous architecture of the high rises. I don’t see anyone criticizing that.
