Can upper Penobscot Bay communities stop the supertank? Find out Nov 2 & 3, 6-8pm

Coming up!  Small Business and Local Citizens of Penobscot Bay Host Presentation and Discussion on the DCP-midstream giant liquified Petroleum Gas Tank Proposal

DCP/ConocoPhillips wants to put a 22.7 Million Gallon Liquid Petroleum Tank in Searsport, operate 24/7 and put up to 144 Tanker Trucks on Route 1 every day Searsport, Maine, 

PENOBSCOT BAY.  Concerned small business owners and local citizens will gather Wednesday November 2 at the Searsport Town Hall (6-8 pm) and Thursday November 3 (6-8 pm) at the Belfast Free Public Library to participate in an informational slide show and facilitated discussion concerning the implications of allowing a 22.7 million gallon liquid petroleum storage facility to move on to Mack Point in Searsport. All are welcome.

The project has already received DOT approval and is awaiting DEP approval…questions need to be raised and answered about the safety and effects of as many as 144 tanker truck trips each day through the Main Streets of Midcoast and surrounding area towns.

In addition to safety and security concerns, meeting attendees will explore the effects such a proposal would have on tourism, public access to roads and waterways, noise and light pollution, property values and the departure from the State Planning Office’s action plan for the promotion of sustainable prosperity and quality places for Maine residents.

Everyone is encouraged to attend, the organizing group believes the effects of the DPC/ConocoPhillips project will be particularly felt from Augusta to Belfast to Ellsworth, from Stockton Springs to Bangor
