We are setting up a videoconference for the public hearing at 6:00 on Tuesday, January 23 at the North Haven Community School. The public hearing will be moderated from Vinalhaven.

The MSFS/MDOT had ruled out a separate public hearing on North Haven because it is required to give 30 notice of such public hearings. It was not therefore in a position to add one.
