Scoping Update: Formally Extended

After a bit of conflicting messages from different FERC staff, we've finally received a formal memo, posted on the Docket (#PF14-22), affirming that the Scoping Comment deadline will be extended, though no new deadline has been set. FERC is still trying to procure a location and date for their final Scoping Meeting in Cheshire County, and we've received assurances that the Comment Period will extend for at least a week after that final meeting. Since this is likely to be after the final Kinder Morgan Open Houses in NewHampshire, we're guessing the new deadline might be during the last week of September, but again, THERE IS NO OFFICIAL DEADLINE SET YET. Until it's on the Docket, it's not official.

Sen. Stan Rosenberg's Scoping Meeting, September 10

As part of the extension of the Scoping comment period, Massachusetts Sen. Stan Rosenberg has set up an additional Scoping Meeting to be held at Greenfield Community College, September 10. Though FERC staff will not be attending, Sen. Rosenberg will be gathering additional scoping comments to be formally filed on the Docket.

The time has been extended to 6:00 to 10:00 pm to allow more time for people who are attending the County Fair Parade.

Citizens' Rallies Continue to Grow

The weekly vigil at the Northfield, MA compressor station site has been meeting every Thursday for some time now, and is steadily growing in attendance, crossing to over 50 in attendance last week.


Pittsfield's first Friday Informational Picket on August 28 gathered a crowd of about 40 from Massachusetts and New York on North Street, in front of Kinder Morgan's local office. This action will be held every Friday at Noon.
