At the November 10, 2016 Zoning Hearing Board meeting for the Poseidon well pad in Penn Township, Huntley & Huntley attempted to block Protect PT’s participation.
Huntley & Huntley representatives claimed Protect PT had no standing and could not participate in the hearing about the Poseidon well pad, with an estimated 12 wells planned at 2001 Snyder Road, Jeannette, PA 15644.
Protect PT members rallied and established there were 10 residents in attendance, proving that Protect PT had standing. We were gratified to see our outreach efforts in the neighborhood were successful. This is one example why membership is so important to Protect PT.
We only exist because a few neighbors wanted to protect the community we live in, and we knew we would be more successful united. Together, we have a better chance to have an impact in protecting our community from outside companies proposing industrial sites near our homes, schools, daycares and playgrounds.
We encourage all our subscribers to become a new member or renew their membership to Protect PT today! Your membership donation will go to fund efforts that include:
Expert testimony at hearings
Legal representation at public meetings
Environmental monitoring resources
