Highland County Public Meeting With Dominion
March 29 @ 6:00 pm
The public in Highland County will finally get a chance to have a face-to-face meeting with Dominion to express opinions about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. At a meeting on Thursday, March 29, 2018, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Highland County high school gymnasium, the County Planning Commission will take questions and comments from the public regarding the proposed ACP. Representatives from project majority-owner Dominion will be on hand.
According to The Recorder, “The stated purpose of the hearing is ‘to determine if the application to construct and operate a natural gas pipeline is substantially in accord with the Highland County Comprehensive Plan.’ About 55 Highland tax map parcels would be affected by the pipeline’s construction in some manner. The actual pipeline would cross 16-20 parcels. The remainder of the affected parcels have easements for access, construction, or other project related needs.”
To review the application, contact the Highland County Zoning Office at (540) 468-2323 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., Monday through Friday. Copies are also available for review in the county administrator’s office and in the office of county attorney Melissa Dowd, 282 Mountain Turnpike. Address written comments to Highland County Department of Building and Zoning, P.O. Box 188, Monterey, Virginia 24465.
