ISLAND POND, Vt. - Questions remain over the Seneca Mountain Wind project.

Landowners in Essex County, Vermont recently participated in a non-binding vote on the proposed 20 turbine project.

The results revealed Monday show 171 people were not in favor of the proposal and 107 were for it.

Because this is a non-binding vote the company proposing the project, Eolian Renewable Energy, could still move forward with proper permits.

The company says after the vote its proposal has not changed. Eolian went on to say it is reevaluating the proposal, as it still hopes to offer a plan that gains local support.
