The Board voted 5-0 earlier tonight to approve the DCP Midstream application as complete. There was hardly a deliberaton or debate, nor was there public comment allowed before the vote. In s similar vein, the rules for the public hearing were also approved 5-0 without public comment. The public hearing is now scheduled for the week of November 26.
TBNT attorneys Steve Hinchman and Kim Tucker addressed the Board during the “open to the public” arguing why the application was incomplete; they were followed by Searsport citizens who strongly voiced their concerns especially about the planning board’s process.
