Pope County and its residents have been receiving correspondence from proponents Otter Tail Power Company and Missouri River Energy Services regarding a proposed powerline project, the “Big Stone South to Alexandria” line.
According to filings by the project proponents, the currently-proposed potential routes for this project do include a significant portion of Pope County land.
Therefore, as a public service, Pope County is advising its residents of the proposed project and noting upcoming opportunities for public engagement at upcoming public meetings, which include an open house on February 20, 2024 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Central Square, 105 2nd Ave NE, in Glenwood. Other dates and project information can be found on at www.bigstonesouthtoalexandria.com, the proponents’ project page.
Note that Pope County is not affiliated with the proposed project before the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, and questions or comments regarding the project should be directed to the proponents, Otter Tail Power Company and Missouri River Energy Services, or to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
