I have heard, without seeing the plans, that the proposed route "skirts" the park, going on park pieces of land for instance near traffic circle at south end of park near diner, then by Burma Rd and under Phillips and Under Turnpike and then on parkland in wooded area near Science Center by Johnston Ave. We will find out if this final route is available to see before April 16 which it should be. If anyone getting this knows how to see the final route, including the LSP area section, please let me know.

As you know, Jersey City has been strongly against it - due to terrorism fear (and other reasons) and also due to the fear that economic development will be harmed on waterfront as pipeline goes under Newport area before going under river to bring gas to NYC. For the media people, whom I've copied and JC officials, the Friends of LSP Board opposes the pipeline.

All:

Please note the [...]DEP's public meetings on April 16th at the Terminal Building to solicit public comments about proposed impacts to Liberty State Park from the gas pipeline to be installed by Texas Eastern (Spectra Energy). The meeting will take place in the Blue Comet Auditorium. There will be two meetings that day, at 3 pm and 6 pm. We are working on a web page for information about the project and hope to have it go live by next Tuesday (April 3rd.)  There will be links to the information page from the Green Acres web site and from the Parks and LSP web sites.  At this point, it appears that the information page will be posted at www.state.nj.us/dep/greenacres/Spectra.html (but that may change in the final translation.)

Please feel free to share this information with anyone you think mat be interested. Thank you.
