Please attend gas pipeline meeting at Peabody City Council on June 23rd

By Eye on Peabody

Kinder Morgan gas pipeline company representatives will come before Peabody’s City Council on Tuesday, June 23rd, 6:30 p.m., at City Hall’s Wiggin Auditorium to answer questions about their proposed pipeline project, which is scheduled to cut through a section of West Peabody.

The company will present details on the project, which is part of the proposed Lynnfield Lateral of the larger Northeast Energy Direct high-pressure natural gas pipeline, answer questions from city councilors and hear comments from residents.

If approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the pipeline would pass through a stretch of Peabody’s Independence Greenway bike path, and make a close pass to several hundred West Peabody homes near Glen Drive and Emily Lane.

Opponents of the project, including those with the local group Peabody Citizens United, say that the gas from this pipeline is not needed in Peabody, yet the project will destroy the bike path, threaten homes, and potentially contaminate the water supply along the Ipswich River.

“We oppose because it’s of no value to Peabody. None of this gas will be used in Peabody. We’re just a pass-through community so Kinder Morgan can eventually export this gas and make even larger profits,” said Bob Croce, Chair of Peabody Citizens United.

    Bob thank-you for your continued support in leading the opposition to the proposed pipeline. I ask ALL the residents from across the city to please come out to city hall and show your support. It is critical that we show a strong, organized united front to Kinder Morgan. So please come out to city hall and be seen.

      Bob would never talk about Bob in the third person. Why would Bob do that?
