New Hampshire Towns Vote To Oppose NED

Logo_2014-08-23

As reported in today’s Keene Sentinel, as well as on New Hampshire Public Radio, citizens of the New Hampshire towns of Fitzwilliam, Rindge and Winchester “overwhelmingly passed articles to take action against national pipeline company Kinder Morgan or its subsidiary Tennessee Gas Pipeline, including barring surveyors or representatives access to town land.”

Two other areas towns, Richmond and Troy, will also consider similar action in opposition to the Northeast Energy Direct (NED) pipeline, which would span 71 miles of Southern New Hampshire en route to Dracut, Massachusetts, at their annual town meetings later this week.

According the article in the Sentinel, Winchester Selectmen Chairwoman Roberta Fraser is happy the articles passed and feel town officials now have direction from residents, adding that at this point she would say no to recent requests from Kinder Morgan reps asking permission to survey town land.
