Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company, L.L.C. (“Tennessee”)

Amherst Board of Selectmen Awaiting More Information

Like many citizens in our town, the Amherst Board of Selectmen is following closely the information associated with the Kinder Morgan gas pipeline proposal. The Selectmen have not taken a position for or against the pipeline at this point as this process is at the beginning stages with very little information available at this point.

We will continue to gather information, meet with Kinder Morgan, with other towns, the Nashua Regional Planning Commission, our State representatives and also our Federal representatives to try and understand what options exist and to make sure that if a pipeline is built in Amherst, it is done in a way that is best for the town of Amherst.

Kinder Morgan intends to hold open houses in January and February with dates, times and locations still to be determined. There will also be formal public hearings at the state and federal level later on in the process. We would encourage interested citizens to attend and speak at the open houses and public hearings.

Below please find information that has been gathered thus far:
