Siting Council public hearing attracts large crowd

Riverside Neighbors:

As reported by Nora Maloney (Riverside Association board member) about Eversource’s planned substation:

The Siting Council public hearing was a lively event last night (Tuesday, Sept. 1) — a very large group with many speakers from the floor. Katie DeLuca and Peter Tesei presented the town’s position with regard to the specific issues Greenwich has with Eversource’s application, among them the architectural plans for a new building in the center of town, the lack of setback and other standard dimensions that are part of a normal P&Z process, the impact of a substation on property values in the surrounding area, the environmental issues regarding a line trench through Bruce Park , who, presumably, the additional capacity is for (Greenwich or another municipality), and the impact on traffic congestion during the construction phase if the application is approved. Fred Camillo also spoke on behalf of Bruce Park.

The Siting Council is accepting additional written input from the community until Sept. 30 at ct.gov/csc/site/default.asp. The Group “GASP” (GASP.com) has more information concerning arguments against the application and a link for appropriate email and snail mail addresses.
