How are you supporting and protecting Bernheim?
We’ve been long-time supporters of Bernheim, from funding tree-plantings on-site to the sponsorship of “Forest Giants in a Giant Forest.” All of us appreciate the importance of Bernheim to the entire community. With respect to the pipeline‘s limited route in the non-public area of Bernheim, here are facts that have been widely misunderstood:
- Only a small portion of the proposed pipeline – about 4,000 feet, or less than a mile – will run alongside an existing electric transmission line on property Bernheim acquired after approval for the pipeline was given by the Kentucky Public Service Commission and more than a year and a half after property discussions began.
- The pipeline route is completely disconnected from Bernheim’s recreational areas that are open to the public and only makes up .03% of Bernheim’s total footprint.
- Importantly, Bernheim will continue to have use of the area after construction.
