Community Meeting Regarding Pipeline Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 7 PM

 

Citizens Preserving Floyd County (CPFC) will hold an important community educational outreach meeting on Thursday, August 14, 2014 to provide new details about the Mountain-Valley pipeline. This 42 inch interstate natural gas transport has been proposed by two energy corporations, EQT and Next Era, to cut across our county.  The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM at the Floyd Ecovillage. It is located at 718 Franklin Pike Rd, Floyd, VA.

Anyone interested in the information we have gathered regarding this pipeline is welcome. It is our intention to support our community by making all known details and response options available to all at this public meeting.  We especially urge county landowners whose property rights may be involved to attend.

A report on how our local government is supporting citizens’ concerns will be presented.  There will be an opportunity to find out how you can help preserve the water, farmland soils, scenic beauty and environmental health of Floyd County. Signs opposing the construction of the pipeline will be available.
