Public Information Meeting on Phase II of the Addison/Rutland Natural Gas Project
Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Middlebury Municipal Gymnasium - 7 p.m.
The focus of this meeting is to provide Middlebury landowners along the proposed route of the pipeline, as well as Middlebury residents, an opportunity to hear updated information, ask questions, express concerns and share any input they may have about the project with the Middlebury Selectboard.
The Selectboard will consider this input at their regular May 13th meeting when discussing possible further action by the Town in the state permitting process. At a future date, the Middlebury Selectboard will hold a separate meeting to discuss if and how the Town should take a formal position on Phase II.
