Property owners from Sandusky and Erie counties met last week at a public hearing to voice their objections to a proposed transmission line by FirstEnergy. If approved, the power line could run directly through some owners’ land, causing landowners to be concerned over not only damage to their land, but environmental hazards attributed to the electromagnetic fields from the poles.
As a result, these landowners proposed alternative routes which would move the power lines to run along property lines instead of through them, also avoiding running the line directly through Peninsular farms, which the owners argued would greatly disrupt the flow of nationally-recognized migrating birds. At the conclusion of the hearing, the administrative judge reported the next step would be an additional hearing, scheduled for June, followed by a vote from the Ohio Power Siting Board which is expected no earlier than August.
