Buckingham Planning Commission Meeting on Compressor Station SUP
April 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Show up – bear witness – At the meeting on Monday evening April 22 of the Buckingham Board of Supervisors to ask the Planning Commission to amend the Special Use Permit (SUP) for the compressor station communication tower to require that the infrastructure be served by broadband and that a last mile provider of broadband be found for businesses and residents along the pipeline. This will enhance safety and economic self-sufficiency in Buckingham, and especially help those who are forced to accept the pipeline.
Because the original SUP was issued for only 18 months, there is an opportunity to respond to new conditions – the change in state law concerning utility sale of broadband – since the pipeline has not yet been built. Citizens are asking that the Supervisors again approve the SUP for the usual 18 month term. Many things related to technology, cybersecurity and other issues are changing quickly. Please do not close the door to asking ACP to include new technology or address new issues by making the SUP last more than 18 months.
