Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct (NED) Project

*IMPORTANT UPDATE*:  The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has not yet scheduled the last public scoping meeting for the Northeast Energy Direct project, which will be in Cheshire County, NH.  Therefore, the scoping comment period for the project has been extended from August 31st to a date to be determined beyond the date of the Cheshire County public meeting(s). Also, the public will be informed at least two weeks in advance of the date of the public meeting.

The Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Board Public Comment hearing was held on August 6, 2015, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Public Scoping Meeting was held on August 12, 2015, both at Lunenburg High School.

On December 8, 2014 Kinder Morgan altered the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct (NED) Project filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to change the preferred route of the natural gas pipeline.  The alternative path would follow existing rights-of-way along the utility lines in Southern New Hampshire.  There is still a lateral pipeline planned to pass through Townsend that would impact 65 landholders.

Tax Bill Information
The Town of Townsend has employed a lock box service for real estate, personal property, and motor vehicle excise tax payments. Payments are now sent to a Century Bank processing center in Reading, MA. Payments are deposited the day they are received at the processing center. This will expedite the task of opening and sorting mail, scanning, and ensuring payment totals match. The Collector's Office will still do the actual posting of payments to your account and is still the contact for payment questions. Payments can still be made in person at the Collector's Office in Town Hall.
More information about the High School Building Project is available on the Project web page. If you have a question about the project please click on the “Have a Question” link at the top right hand side of the home page. http://www.nmhsproject.com/

Individuals interested in serving should submit a Volunteer Response Form to the Board of Selectmen. Volunteer Response Form.pdf
