As a reminder, the Weymouth Conservation Commission will be meeting tomorrow, April 6, to discuss the application of Algonquin Gas Transmission, LLC for a Notice of Intent to construct a natural gas compressor station as part of the Atlantic Bridge Project. We encourage folks to attend this hearing and to share their comments with the Commission.
The public hearing will be held at the Weymouth High School, 1 Wildcat Way, South Weymouth, in the Mary Jo Livingstone Humanities Center (maroon building) at 6pm.
The Notice of Intent has been filed under the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act (MGL chapter 131, section 40) and the Weymouth Wetlands Protection Ordinance (Weymouth Code of Ordinances, section 7-301). The proposed project is located on Bridge Street on the parcel shown as Assessor’s Map 6, Block 63, Lot 1. The subject land is located within Designated Port Area and portions of the work are located within Land Subject to Coastal Storm Flowage, Riverfront Area, and Buffer Zone to Coastal Bank and Coastal Beach.
The compressor station will be the only item on the meeting agenda and there will be ample time for questions and discussion, but please note that the public hearing will be limited to discussion of issues relevant to the state Wetlands Protection Act and the Weymouth Wetlands Protection Ordinance. Thank you.
