Citizens protest Hollis pipeline as town awaits project details
“I see no problem with this, as long as there’s a distinction that there is no outside group speaking for the town,” Selectman Peter Band said at Monday night’s meeting.
Representatives from Kinder Morgan, the parent company of Tennessee Gas Pipeline, have said the 187-mile-long natural gas distribution pipeline would run across northern Massachusetts into Dracut, Mass., with a 12-inch pipeline running north from Pepperell, Mass., toward Nashua.
McGhee, who summarized N.H. Pipeline Awareness as “a diverse group of people trying to prevent the pipeline,” said several members are raising families in areas that would be directly affected.
McGhee said the group plans to present a suggested strategy for combating the pipeline at some point this fall.
Selectmen have vowed to work with the town’s attorney and legislators to voice their dismay over the project.
The topic will be further addressed during a Hollis Planning Board meeting next month.
Drew said the appeals process generally takes about nine months. He said that even if the state committee decides in the town’s favor, FERC has the final say in the matter.
