Opposition to the Cardinal Hickory Creek high voltage transmission line proposed to go through the Town of Vermont is growing all over Southwest Wisconsin. People from the entire area will be gathering in Dodgeville for a forum on how to defeat the transmission line and what can be done instead. The three panels will feature experts from around the country with practical experience defeating these costly projects. The evening session is designed for the general pubic and is focused on practical steps to take to stop the construction of the line.
Car pool with your neighbors to this event and see what we can accomplish together to protect us from this unneeded transmission line that will be a blight on our land.

A citizens committee in Vermont Township, Wisconsin formed to provide the township residents with information and strategies regarding energy transmission with a specific focus on the proposed Cardinal-Hickory power line.
