A powerful new agreement between the Township and an energy provider ensures a safe, discrete expansion of power lines in a Township park.
The Board of Supervisors on August 27 approved an option with American Transmission Services Inc., an affiliate of First Energy, to expand existing power lines in North Boundary Park.
The agreement grants an additional 20 feet to the existing easement determined it to be less intrusive than a new, stand-alone easement. The location is a collaboration between the Township’s Engineering and Planning departments and the Township’s youth sports partners.
The agreement only grants the option to purchase the additional easement in the next two years and is not a guarantee that additional transmission lines would be built.
