FRIENDS OF NELSON
Environment, Pipeline Opposition, Property Rights.
Friends of Nelson’s mission is to protect property rights, property values, rural heritage and the environment for all the citizens of Nelson County, Virginia by opposing the proposed $4.5 billion to $5 billion 550-mile Atlantic Coast Natural Gas pipeline which would run from Harrison County, West Virginia, southeast through Virginia with an extension to Chesapeake, Virginia, and then south through eastern North Carolina to Robeson County. In 2020, Dominion Resources abandoned their plan to build the pipeline, due to escalating costs and market conditions for natural gas (and ongoing grass roots opposition to the plan from groups like FON). We congratulate them on their success and were happy to contribute in a small way to conclusion.
