MEA Requests Member Feedback on Final Transmission Routes
Meeting on Tuesday, 11/10/15
Palmer, AK: After almost a year of public comment and community meetings, MEA has identified their preferred alternative to the Parks Highway transmission route through Wasilla. MEA detailed the process and resulting alternatives in a draft Decisional Document sent to the Mat Su Borough and City of Wasilla indicating the preferred alternate transmission route and two other options for consideration. The document is the result of a detailed analysis of 440 route options, including an in-depth public involvement process.
MEA encourages members and other stakeholders to provide feedback on the draft Decisional Document during this final 30-day public comment period ending November 9, 2015. MEA also invites interested parties to comment during the City of Wasilla Planning Commission public hearing on November 10, 2015 when the commission will discuss MEA’s application to permit one of three routes through the city.
The Decisional Document is available for review at:
- MEA Website – www.mea.coop/WasillaTLine
- MEA Headquarters – Front Desk
- Matanuska-Susitna Borough – Permits Center
