(Greenfield, MA) - WHMP Radio and Montague Community Television are presenting a community forum on the proposal by the Kinder-Morgan company to build a gas pipeline that would run through several Franklin County towns.
The two-hour forum on the proposed pipeline and on related energy and environmental policy issues will be held on Tuesday, June 3rd from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Greenfield Community College Dining Commons which seats 300. The forum is co-produced by Greenfield Community Television and Easthampton Community Access Television.

The forum will be hosted by WHMP Franklin County Bureau Chief Chris Collins, attorney Bill Newman, host of WHMP’s Bill Newman Show, and WHMP reporter Mary Serreze. The forum is free and open to the public, and some time will be allotted to give audience members an opportunity to speak.
The first hour of the program will focus on the gas pipeline proposal and its impact on the region’s laws and regulations, local resources and property--and how the siting and approval processes work. In the second hour, the participants will address energy policy including natural gas and renewables, safety concerns, and how energy policy decisions are made.
