Some states have property rights advocates — why doesn't Vermont?

Posted on August 21, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



ADDISON COUNTY — For months, landowners along the Addison-Rutland Natural Gas Project pipeline route have asked state regulators to provide them with legal help to negotiate easements with Vermont Gas Systems.

The Office of the Attorney General does not represent private citizens, and many landowners feel the Department of Public Service has not offered adequate legal support, leaving them with few resources to represent their best interests.

Vermont Gas to offer mediation to landowners, begin eminent domain process

Posted on August 14, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont Gas Systems announced on Tuesday that it is employing a new tactic to secure land rights necessary to construct a natural gas pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury — the company will now provide independent mediators to help landowners negotiate with the company.

“We’re going to be offering neutral mediation for those landowners who we have not been able to reach agreements with,” company spokesman Steve Wark said.

Opinion: Senators are wrong — pipeline won't benefit Cornwall

Posted on July 30, 2014 |
By Brian Gill



Sens. Mullin and Flory state that the Cornwall and Shoreham villages would get access to a more affordable heating option by agreeing to Phase II of the Addison Rutland natural gas pipeline. The residents of these towns with access to the gas would be approximately 10 percent of the population, hence leaving the remaining 90 percent out in the cold.

Opinion: Pipeline doesn't qualify for eminent domain takeover

Posted on July 28, 2014 |
By Norton Latourelle



In response to Sens. Mullin and Flory’s Community Forum in last week’s paper, I would first ask them: Please, senators, shouldn’t you pay for your own pipeline? Shoreham and Cornwall’s inevitably devalued land and our degraded Lake Champlain are not fair trade-offs.

Secondly, can you, senators, get Vermont Gas to guarantee that natural gas will continue to be 40 percent less than oil and propane?

ADDISON COUNTY — Opponents of the Addison-Rutland Natural Gas Project have asked the Vermont Public Service Board to reexamine its approval of Phase I of the pipeline, while the Department of Public Service asked the Board not to delay construction of the project.

Three residents who live in towns affected by the pipeline, which would run from Colchester to Middlebury and Vergennes, on July 21 petitioned the Board to investigate the reasons behind a 40 percent project cost increase announced by Vermont Gas Systems earlier this month, and take appropriate action.
