Let your voice be heard! Environmental Impact Statement for PATH

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Here’s your opportunity to comment on the environmental impact of PATH!  The National Park Service and US Forest Service will hold public meetings to provide the public an opportunity to review and comment on the PATH project.  This scoping phase will determine what gets studied and how it gets studied, so come out to learn and be heard!

Date: Wednesday, July 21

Time: 4pm-8pm

Location: Tuscarora High School

Address: 5312 Ballenger Creek Pike, Frederick, MD

PATH has requested permits for a new 765kV line to cross federal lands in MD, VA, and WV: from Four national park units in the vicinity of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia (WV)
— Harpers Ferry National Historical Park (NHP)
— Appalachian National Scenic Trail (NST)
— Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park (NHP)
— Potomac Heritage National Scenic Trail (NST)
• The northern portion of Monongahela National Forest in TuckerCounty, WV
The Environmental Impact Statements needs to study the entire PATH Project not just where it crosses federal land.
