Middlebury sets meeting to discuss pipeline plan

Posted on April 24, 2014 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard this past Tuesday set an agenda for an April 29 public information meeting the town of Middlebury will be hosting about the Phase II Addison-Rutland Natural Gas Project.

That meeting will focus on the proposed construction of a natural gas pipeline from Middlebury through Cornwall and Shoreham and under Lake Champlain to the International Paper Co. in Ticonderoga, N.Y.

Opinion: Pipeline to N.Y. a terrible idea

After reading the April 14 Addison Independent article titled “Phase II pipeline clears ACRPC hurdle,” we send our thanks to those of you on the commission who voted against this and its negative impact on so many Addison County residents.

Editorial: Questions and potential solutions for Phase II

Posted on April 24, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Vermont Gas is getting the jump on its next public information campaign by hosting a series of community hearings for Phase III of its natural gas pipeline extending from Middlebury to Rutland. The target is to complete that section of the pipeline by 2020 at a cost between $130 million to $160 million.

For affected landowners in Middlebury, Salisbury, Leicester, Brandon and south, an open house in Brandon will be held May 8. (See story on Page 1A.)

Opinion: Official wrong on pipeline claims

Posted on April 16, 2014 |
By Mary Martin



This is in response to the April 4 letter by Mr. Grinnell to our Addison County Regional Planning Commission.

Need to hear the truth?

New York wants to be heard. Well, maybe they should listen to some of the bunk we’ve been fed by Vermont Gas.

The Ticonderoga town supervisor should know that Vermont Gas said it isn’t going any further than the mill.

Phase II pipeline clears regional planning commission hurdle

Posted on April 14, 2014 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County Regional Planning Commission (ACRPC) board on Wednesday voted 15-11 that the proposed natural gas pipeline from Middlebury to Ticonderoga, N.Y., can pass muster with the county’s regional plan. That decision will be passed along to the Vermont Public Service Board to consider as it determines whether to green-light the controversial project being advanced by Vermont Gas.

Opinion: 'Devil' invited to ACRPC board meeting last week

Posted on April 14, 2014 |
By Bobbie Carnwath



Last weekend I submitted a letter to the editor of this paper, with my opinion on how the Addison County Regional Planning Commission (ACRPC) should vote this week on Vermont Gas Systems’ (VGS) Phase II pipeline proposal. My letter arrived too late for Monday’s paper, and my recommendations would have been moot, so I agreed with the editor that I should withdraw that letter and, instead, comment on the ACRPC vote after the fact.

Opinion: Is gas company's nose a bit longer?

Posted on April 9, 2014 |
By Ralph Worrick



Angelo Lynn’s editorial on Monday, April 7, pointed out that Vermont Gas’ “side of the story” is that without the International Paper lateral extension, extending the pipeline to Rutland might take 10 years or more. In fact, their current side of the story is that without IP’s funding they won’t be able to reach Rutland until 2035.

Opinion: Pipeline makes moot state efforts to clean up lake

Posted on April 7, 2014 |
By Maureen Gour



I was struck by a headline in the April 2 Burlington Free Press: “Conservation department updates plan to clean up Lake Champlain.” Here we are, the state of Vermont, trying to clean up the lake, yet Vermont Gas Systems (owned by a Canadian corporation, Gaz Métro) wants to lay a natural gas pipeline under the lake to feed the profits of International Paper, who owns a mill in New York state.
