Livermore 'friends' pleased with potential settlement from Groton Wind project
The state has negotiated a settlement in which a local wind power company would donate $150,000 to the Livermore Falls project.
“We are trying to make safe passage across the river, and though it’s a rite of passage for young people to use the old bridge, it’s very dangerous there now,” said Shelagh Connelly, a Holderness selectman and a member of the chapter, which is sponsored by the Plymouth Rotary.
The Livermore Falls area is a set of waterfalls, cliffs and beaches along the river below the old Pumpkin Seed Bridge in the towns of Campton, Plymouth and Holderness. It is recognized as a site of historical significance because of its beautiful geology.
Last week, the friends group learned about the settlement. But friends group members aren’t counting on the money yet, as the settlement still needs approval from the SEC.
The friends group will meet with state officials in the coming weeks to get more information about the settlement, Connelly said.
