Council Chambers, 2nd Floor, City Hall 230 Grove Street, Jersey City
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued their Final Environment Impact Study (FEIS) two weeks ago approving of Spectra’s plans to build a pipeline through the heart of Jersey City to deliver gas to Manhattan. For those not familiar with the plans, you can find a map of the route as well as other information on the NO Gas Pipeline WEBSITE.
What does this mean for THE VILLAGE section of downtown Jersey City.
This is possibly one of the most important issues to face our neighborhood, and your involvement is key to stopping it.
