Pipeline expansion meeting postponed in Greenfield


GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Franklin Regional Council of Governments planned an informational meeting Thursday night to talk about the natural gas pipeline proposal, but it’s been canceled.

The meeting was supposed to take place at the John Olver Transit center in downtown Greenfield, but the meeting room that holds 100 people was too small to accommodate all the Franklin County residents concerned about the pipeline.

They planned to address questions people have about the proposed gas line expansion.

Linda Dunlavy, Executive Director of FRCOG, told 22News, “People’s concerns are how will it go through private lands, will it go through state lands, will it go through protected lands, how much say do we have in altering the route, and how much say do we have in stopping the project altogether?”

Kinder Morgan started contacting Franklin County communities about their plans at the beginning of the year. A lot of people have expressed concerns about it.

They haven’t yet set a new date for that meeting. Stay with 22News for the latest information when it becomes available.
