Nancy Martland and Paul Grenier: Honest dialogue needed if Northern Pass is to survive
We both believe that Northern Pass must recognize legitimate objections from affected communities. We are convinced that a responsible solution can be found, but only in the presence of honest dialogue among all the stakeholders involved, and a willingness from the developers to address key objections in a meaningful way. Otherwise, Northern Pass is headed for a brick wall of public resistance, drawn-out litigation, permitting disputes, legislative remedies and other roadblocks.
Martland, an unabashed advocate of buried HVDC transmission lines, thinks one solution lies underground along highways and railways. That is where successful developers plan to place HVDC lines in Quebec, New York, Vermont, Pennyslvania, Maine and elsewhere. Grenier agrees that burying more lines could erase the negative impacts on many private property owners.
Nancy Martland of Sugar Hill is coordinator of Sugar Hill Tower Opponents. Paul Grenier is mayor of Berlin.
