The Martha’s Vineyard Commission (MVC) will hold a public hearing on designation of the land zone of the Island Wind District of Critical Planning Concern (DCPC) on Thursday, Dec. 10, at 7:30 pm, at the MVC Offices at 33 New York Avenue in Oak Bluffs.

The MVC already designated the ocean zone of the Island Wind DCPC, which encompasses Island waters out to the 3-mile limit of the towns’ jurisdiction. The public hearing offers town boards and members of the public an opportunity to comment on whether or not the MVC should designate the lands and inland waters as well.

The proposed DCPC land zone presently includes the air space above 150 feet over all lands and waters of Dukes County with the exception of certain Indian lands, all school grounds, and the town of Edgartown.
