Iberdrola spokesman Paul Copleman said in a written statement that the company was disappointed, but promised to abide by results. "We plan to cease development of the Stiles Brook Wind Project, unless the communities reconsider their decision," he wrote.
Voters in Grand Isle, North Hero and Isle La Motte agreed to a school consolidation plan that will create the Champlain Islands Unified Union School District starting July 1, 2019.
South Hero residents voted 737-380 against joining the district, while Alburgh residents declined to participate in the vote.
The consolidation plan came in response to Act 46, a state law passed last year intended to reduce school administrative costs.
Three States Legalize Marijuana
Voters in four states went where Vermont lawmakers declined to go this year — they legalized marijuana.
Most notably, Massachusetts voted for legalization, the first state in New England to do so. In Maine, the "yes" votes have a slim lead as results continue to be counted. California and Nevada also voted for legalization.
