Concord wants voice heard separately on Northern Pass

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - The city of Concord wants its concerns about the Northern Pass project to be treated separately from other communities.

The Concord Monitor reports the city filed a motion on Friday to independently participate in state proceedings on the project, instead of working with a group of other cities and towns to identify concerns.

Deputy City Solicitor Danielle Pacik says the proposal has significant and unique impacts on Concord.

The state's Site Evaluation Committee is in charge of granting state approval for Northern Pass, which would bring Canadian hydropower to the New England power grid and run a 192-mile electric transmission line through New Hampshire. More than 100 "interveners" filed to participate in the permitting process.

Federal approval also is needed for Northern Pas, which would run eight miles overhead through Concord.
