Louisville Gas and Electric (LG&E) requested an easement from Bernheim for the proposed Bullitt County Natural Gas Pipeline. The tracts known as the Cedar Grove Wildlife Corridor are subject to a conservation easement and deed restrictions prohibiting destruction of forests, streams and springs, and prohibiting the transfer of property by Bernheim for non-conservation purposes or the granting of easements for non-conservation purposes including natural gas pipelines. Alternative routes exist that would not destroy conservation lands.
We don't need you to destroy our only sanctuary from Louisville. Considering how you maintain our infrastructure, God knows in a few years, it'll be in ruins.
Take OUR money and fix the roads we have! Hello? We can't even drive on the Bluegrass Parkway anymore. Driving 71 is dangerous with holes and pavement buckled like speedbumps. 65 constantly has accidents due to potholes. I lost 2 wheels on Joe Prather highway 2 years ago and the road has not been fixed. Kentuckians want our infrastructure fixed. Who really profits from this? Not the majority who drive on the existing subpar city, county, and interstate roads of Kentucky.
My question is why make a horrible decsion to neglect our infrastructure by harming and taking away what we love and value? This is one of the few remaining last stands of Kentucky nature for us and future!!!
And you're stealing to do it. What's wrong with you?
These lands are protected for a reason. This pipeline should be rerouted to go around the protected lands to keep them safe!
Allow Bernheim to fulfill its obligation and mission of preservation and conservation. Do not use this natural asset as a shortcut for pipelines!
