Community Discussion Forum

Presentation & Discussion 

on the Proposed APS 69kV Powerline into the VOC

Wednesday, April 28th 4pm, via Zoom

NOTE: You may submit questions ahead of the forum by email:  The chairman will read and respond to the group. 

The Big Park Regional Coordinating Council's sub-committee has been researching and studying the APS proposal for a 69kV that would traverse through USFS land into the Village of Oak Creek.  The subcommittee's recommendations will be presented for discussion and a vote at the May 13th meeting of the Council.  The Council's recommendation will be forwarded to the USFS to be included in their deliberations and decision on what they will allow on Forest Service land.

As this is a technically complex subject, the sub-committee is offering an online ZOOM discussion forum to explain their recommendations and provide a question/answer opportunity for the entire community.
