Langley Township wants input from the community as it prepares its first submission to the National Energy Board about the proposed twinning of the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline, which will run through North Langley.
The Township has been granted intervener status, and is focusing on three specific issues: the potential environmental and socio-economic effects of the proposal; suitability of the design and location of the new pipeline; and potential impacts of the project on landowners and land use.
It will submit information to the NEB on May 2, so is asking for comments in writing before Wednesday, April 30.
Comments must be from Langley Township residents, and must be submitted in writing. These comments can be e-mailed to email@example.com or by mail to Pipeline Input, c/o Township engineering division, 20338 65 Ave., Langley, BC, V2Y 3J1 or to Pipeline Input, c/o Township engineering division, 4700 224 St., Langley, BC, V2Z 1N4.
There will be a second round of hearings to submit information in September, and Township residents will be asked for input over the summer months.
More information will be available on a website the Township is setting up. It is not expected to be operational until Thursday. Its web address is tol.ca/pipelineinput.
