Transmissions, sounds at hearings in Ghent
May 26, 2013 12:02 am
Public hearings in Ghent soon will help consider the fate of a proposed electric transmission line and a town law regarding issues around concerts and festivals, and race tracks, in Ghent. Project Ghent is organizing opposition to the proposed NYSEG transmission line that, they say, is artificially taking an indirect route through Ghent to get around local regulation of the line; company officials say their way is best for all. Administrative Law Judge Eleanor Stein heads a Public Hearing about the project at the West Ghent Fire Co. Station, 74 Bender Blvd, in Gerald Simons Commerce Park, just off 9H. The Public Service Commission holds an information session first at 4 p.m., with public statements at 5 p.m. The Town of Ghent also holds a public hearing at 7 p.m. June 20 at Town Hall to consider proposed Local Law No. 1 of the year 2013, "which would amend the Town of Ghent Zoning Code regarding issues of concerts, exhibitions, festivals, race tracks, commercial rural recreational (use)."
