According to the article, the Mayor of Madison, Wisconsin pledged on April 26, 2006 to fight against a high-voltage power line that would run through the south side of the city. Specifically, a major new American Transmission Company power line was proposed for Dane County however, Dave Cieslewicz, Madison’s Mayor, asserted that the power line was not useful for the City. While the Mayor found that the proposal to install the line was reasonable, he articulated that “[a] route that would follow the Beltline would have a significant impact on city neighborhoods, on the economic renaissance that is just starting on the south side, [and] on environmental justice concerns.” The mayor did not want to implement a project that, although beneficial to the entire region, would disproportionately load the cost on Madison. Article taken from EJ in the News.
