MassPLAN is a coalition of local and statewide groups and organizations opposed to the proposed Kinder Morgan/Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct Project (June 2014 Kinder Morgan presentation). This website provides information about the Massachusetts portion of the proposed project — previously called the Northeast Expansion Project. See the Citizens’ Map of the Proposed Route across Massachusetts (excluding proposed lateral lines to Lynnfield, Worcester, and New Hampshire).
- “Gov. Patrick backs away from regional effort to expand natural gas capacity,” “Mass. municipal group pushes for ownership role in new gas pipeline,” (Boston Business Journal, August 18, 2014)
- Lesser, Newman & Nasser, LLP is legal counsel to MassPLAN. They will work in collaboration with other lawyers, across the state and across areas of specialization, to represent the coalition and assist individual landowners in furtherance of our mission.
Individuals who have contributed information to the site include landowners whose property would be crossed by the proposed pipeline path, landowners who already have gas pipelines through their property, individuals who work with land trusts, environmental organizations, or town governments, and concerned citizens across the Commonwealth.
