(Greenfield, MA) – Greenfield residents got a chance to have their say last night regarding a proposed natural gas pipeline slated to come through Franklin County. A sparse crowd attended last night’s public hearing of the Greenfield Town Council’s Community Relations and Education Committee. Among the speakers was Congress Street resident Garrett Connolly, who believes that this project is being pushed through with little regard to the public’s concerns. ┬áThe C.R.E. committee vote 5-nothing to recommend that the full council approve the resolution opposing the project. It will be voted on at the council’s July meeting.
