PITTSBURG — A resolution recommending that that "no new utility generating or transmission facilities be allowed within the Connecticut Lakes Headwaters conservation easement area (on 146,400 acres of privately owned 'working' forest) or the fee properties (28,364 acres) acquired by the state in 2003 was withdrawn by its sponsor after discussion at Saturday's meeting of the Connecticut Lakes Headwaters Citizens (Advisory) Committee in the Pittsburg Fire Station. Chandler explained that his proposed resolution was not solely directed at Northern Pass but would include any proposed "new utility generating or transmission facilities" that might come up.
