In accordance with the provisions of the Ashland Scenic Road Bylaw, the Ashland Planning Board will hold a public hearing on Thursday July 25, 2019 at 7:15 p.m. in Ashland Town Hall, 101 Main Street, Ashland, MA on the petition of NSTAR Gas d/b/a Eversource Energy (Eversource) for approval of a Scenic Roads Application for the Eversource Energy Hopkinton to Ashland Transfer Line Project in accordance with Chapter 40, Section 15C of the Massachusetts General Laws and Chapter 249, Section 20 of the Town of Ashland Code.

The project consists of temporary disturbance within the existing pipeline easement at two designated scenic roads, Chestnut Street and Cedar Street, consisting of in-street construction and temporarily removal and reassembly of existing stone walls, but no disturbance to nearby trees along the two scenic roads.

Parties wishing to be heard on this matter should submit comments to the Planning Board ahead of time and/or appear at the time and place indicated above.
