By News release
A panel of Concord officials will testify as a group on Thursday at the state Site Evaluation Committee’s hearings on the Northern Pass Transmission Project. Members of the panel have pre-filed testimony and will be cross-examined by the committee, other intervening parties and Northern Pass attorneys. Concord testimony is expected to begin at approximately 10 a.m. and will run for several hours.
If built as proposed, Northern Pass will cut through 8 miles of Concord with average pole heights of more than 100 feet. Given Concord’s population and status as the state capital, Northern Pass will arguablly have more impact on Concord than any other community in the state.
The Site Evaluation Committee holds its hearings at 49 Donovan Street, Concord. It expects to wrap up hearings in mid-December and issue a decision on the project in February 2018.
