You must own a property that has no value to lose.

Hey why not build more housing in our farm fields then we will buy corn from China. Build more homes school taxs go up class size bigger crime goes up need more power, traffic jams no trees to look at and oh yeah more power needed. STOP BUILDING AND THEY WONT NEED MORE POWER!!!!! How about we buy a housing developement tear it down to make a farm field out of it!!!

I wonder how much of this fuss would be made if PP&L wanted to build a bigger pole line in my back yard?

I believe it was during the Clinton administration that the NESC (NOT NEC) was modified to allow for development closer to high voltage "high tension" lines.

That's why nowadays you see high tension lines through big box stores and businesses set up under the lines where in the days of past there was nothing anywhere near a high tension line.

It seems like the the park service is saying it's better to be in your backyard or your neighborhood,then in an area where there is few people or houses or schools etc,This is why I believe we need less bureaus,or little kingdoms,because they forget who pays for all the things they need or want,the tax payer,Do we really need this service?
