Environmental Justice for Union Hill
May 30, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Come join concerned citizens to stand with Union Hill and Buckingham residents as they present the environmental justice issues to the Governor’s Advisory Council on Environmental Justice. Wednesday, May 30, VCE Building, 13327 West James Anderson Highway, Buckingham. Parking across the street at Maysville Baptist Church.
Agenda: 9-10 a.m. – tour of Union Hill (for Council members only). Public portion of the meeting: 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. There will only be 25 minutes from 11:35 for individuals to make public comments related directly to the ACEJ subcommittee report and the DEQ presentation on the permit for the Union Hill Compressor Station. After that, 12-1 in-council discussion on the subcommittee recommendations to the ACEJ. Lunch. Presentation. 1:50 -2:15 general public comment time. Although, individuals from Union Hill have had the opportunity to speak with ACEJ subcommittee members, none of that was “on the record” of the ACEJ. So, if possible, during the 11:35am public comment time, it would be a gesture of solidarity to allow the folks from Union Hill to present first person and scientific evidence of water, air, historic cultural, erasures from FEIS, etc to get these points in the public record.
There is no planned rally outside the Coop building, and we know there will be lots of allies who plan to stand in solidarity and to let the ACEJ know that they care deeply about environmental justice issues related to Union Hill.
