Letter from the President

Summer is vacation season, yet each time we return to our hometown after an extended absence, we appreciate once again the very special place that Sudbury is and how fortunate we are to live in a community that has preserved, protected, and maintained the historic character and natural beauty of our surroundings. This, of course, is an important part of the reason why our community has been so passionate about protecting what has been handed down to us and what we also wish to pass on to future generations of Sudbury citizens.

Despite the warm weather this summer, there’s been no rest for Protect Sudbury!  Read More...

Protect Sudbury in the News
“When you look at what’s being proposed, you realize it’s a flawed route. It has the worst of every possible outcome – it ruins Sudbury’s historic district, goes over the backyards of 300 residents and through protected conservation area, and it could poison the town’s water supply.’’
 
Upcoming Events:
  • Sat, Sept. 11th, 10:00 am, Sudbury Valley Trustees - Highlights of Memorial Forest
  • Weds, Sept. 14th, FuGaKyu Fundraiser - Lunch and Dinner

Letter from Susan Iuliano, Chair of Sudbury BOS

As most Protect Sudbury followers know, the Eversource Sudbury-to-Hudson Reliability Project must be approved by a state board, the Energy Facilities Siting Board. In February, Eversource announced that it planned to file a Petition with the EFSB that would propose a Preferred option of overhead lines on the MBTA right-of-way (ROW) with an Alternative option of underground lines on the ROW. In response to the public outcry, Eversource then agreed to reconsider its options, especially in light of the desire for an option off of the ROW and under town streets.
 
Last May, Eversource informed the town that it would likely file its Petition around early September, after meeting with the town to provide an update on the routes selected for the Petition. As the summer progressed, Eversource delayed the meetings and ultimately indicated that a late October filing was more likely.
