Opinion: Cornwall clarifies position on pipeline negotiations

Posted on January 23, 2015 |
By Ben Wood



The Cornwall selectboard would like to clarify its position regarding Vermont Gas Systems’ Phase II project.

We, the selectboard, said from the outset that we would work to oppose the pipeline AND we would attempt to work with VGS so that IF, despite our opposition, the Public Service Board (PSB) were to allow the project, we could negotiate the best outcome for Cornwall as a whole. That hasn’t changed.

Cornwall pipeline vote canceled

Posted on January 19, 2015 |
By John Flowers



CORNWALL — It is looking like Cornwall citizens will not field a Feb. 12 referendum on the Phase II natural gas pipeline after all.

Citing a recent decision by Vermont Gas to suspend its permitting efforts for Phase II, Cornwall selectboard members are poised to rescind a motion they made earlier this month to hold a townwide vote on whether the community should sign a compensation agreement with Vermont Gas.

Opinion: Cornwall shouldn't compromise

Posted on January 19, 2015 |
By Timothy Fisher



Editor’s note: The following was submitted as an open letter to the Cornwall selectboard.

First I want to thank you for the hundreds of hours of work you have put in trying to deal with the proposed gas pipeline issue. All of this was imposed upon you by Vermont Gas, who with their limitless resources have used their ability to deprive you of so much of your personal life to try to wear you down to acquiescence to their proposed pipeline.

Opinion: Cornwall wise to halt Vt. Gas talks

Posted on December 30, 2014 |
By Jane Palmer



Boy am I glad I am not a selectboard member in Cornwall right now.

Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place. To recap the situation, in a nutshell, Vermont Gas/Gaz Métro proposed a high-pressure fracked gas pipeline through Cornwall and Shoreham and under the lake to reach its potentially most lucrative customer ever, and the majority of voters in Cornwall and Shoreham (at their respective town meetings last year), told VGS to go pound salt.

Posted on December 23, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



ADDISON COUNTY — Vermont Gas Systems’ recent offer of $1.5 million in cash and other incentives to Cornwall if the town dropped its opposition to Phase II of the Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project signaled a change in tactics for the company as it tries to complete the three-phase pipeline project.

SOUTH BURLINGTON — Vermont Gas Systems on Friday announced that Phase I of the Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project pipeline will cost $33 million more than the company estimated in July, for a total cost of $154 million.

UPDATED: Vt. Gas, Cornwall eye agreement on Phase II pipeline

Posted on December 17, 2014 |
By John Flowers



CORNWALL — The Cornwall selectboard on Tuesday evening tabled action on a negotiated agreement with Vermont Gas Systems regarding the Phase II natural gas pipeline, following pleas from most of the approximately 25 people who turned out at the board’s meeting to argue the pact was flawed.

The agreement, unveiled this week, calls for Cornwall to drop its opposition to the project in exchange for Vermont Gas making some substantial financial concessions that would collectively reduce local residents’ property taxes by an estimated 4 percent.

Federal regulator cedes pipeline jurisdiction to N.Y., Vt.

Posted on September 30, 2014 |
By Addison Independent



ADDISON COUNTY — The federal agency responsible for regulating interstate energy projects has granted a waiver that gives New York and Vermont, the two states through which Phase II of Vermont Gas Systems’ Addison Rutland Natural Gas Project would run, authority to approve or reject the plan.

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.
