Denecker plan, land sale could hinge on new Act 250 criterion

Posted on October 2, 2014 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Dennecker stie plan Rt 22A Sept. 2014.jpg

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a ruling Sept. 26 that Phase II complies with the Natural Gas Act, which prohibits the construction of a natural gas pipeline in an area already served by natural gas.

By Zach Despart



BRISTOL — Downtown Bristol is a little spiffier — and safer for pedestrians — now that a renovation of the Prince Lane area is complete.
