NORWICH – Burying the NYRI power line would revitalize interest in the Alteren Resort project, Alteren Managing Partner Bill Bobo said Tuesday.
New York Regional Interconnect Inc. is proposing to bury its line on the east hill where developers say the resort would overlook the City of Norwich. Fears that the cables and 115-foot-tall towers would ruin views from hill, located in the Town of Norwich along East River Road, stalled any further progress on the resort, Bobo said.
“Our concern was the aesthetic view,” said Bobo, adding that if the line is to be buried as now proposed, “That would be very good for us ... It would help us significantly.”
