The MD zoning appeal by AEP/FE also included some important opinions that should be noted. AEP/FE lawyers describe the Mt. Airy substation opponents as “well-organized and extremely vocal.” We should all take that as a compliment. Thanks you, power companies, we’re glad you noticed.
The other statement in the AEP/FE pleading is “Petitioner is pursuing this judicial review because PATH cannot be built without the Substation.” If they can’t build the substation at Mt. Airy, they can’t build PATH. That’s kind of a moot point, because they can’t build PATH anyway at this point, but everyone involved in the PATH fight should note how important the zoning fight in MD is to all of us.
