Good news, Fore River Campers! State House News reporting another (the 9th!) stay from Coastal Zone Management! Until at least Nov. 4. Maybe beyond.
State House News Service - CZM AGAIN EXTENDS REVIEW OF NATURAL GAS PROJECT
“It will remain unclear for at least another month if a controversial natural gas compressor station proposed for Weymouth will advance after a state agency tasked with reviewing the project again sought an extension.
For the ninth time since it began examining the plans, the office of Coastal and Zone Management agreed with Algonquin Gas Transmission to a stay of its federal consistency review.
The office paused its work on the project for a month starting Sept. 16, the state Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs confirmed. Under the current agreement, it will restart the review on Oct. 16 and complete it by Nov. 4, although that could end up being pushed back by another extension.
CZM traditionally does not issue its rulings until other state regulators have completed their reviews, and the Department of Environmental Protection still has not ruled on appeals filed challenging wetlands and waterways permits it issued.
Residents who oppose the project filed cases in both state and federal court appealing the DEP's earlier decision to stand by an air-quality permit that had been appealed. - Chris Lisinski/SHNS” (State House News Service, 2019)
