Alternative routes being laid out for gas pipeline expansion
In addition, town official cited also working with its legal counsel to voice their dismay about the project and explore what options are available in the months ahead.
BBA’s conservation lands span more than 1,280 acres of forests, fields and wetlands in Hollis, as well as Brookline and Milford, according to the organization’s website.
While the board encouraged residents to save their comments for the coming week’s public hearing, no one in the room raised their hands when asked if they’d prefer what’s believed to be the original route being considered by Kinder Morgan.
“Right now, our objective it so share data so during the upcoming public hearing, we’ll have a sense of the residents’ preferences,” Le Doux added.
While company officials have yet to reveal the exact route being proposed for the pipeline, initial surveying requests made to property owners and the BBA have already given locals a pretty good idea of what the company is considering.
Two other routes proposed are of similar length and would both utilize existing utility corridors and public right-of-way. Maps of the three alternative sites may be viewed online at www.beaverbrook.org/pipeline/.
