Palmer, AK - On Tuesday, April 5, 2022, MEA submitted the Decisional Document to the Mat-Su Borough for the Transmission Line Routing and Substation Siting Study for the Fishhook to Pittman Power Improvement Project. Over the past year, MEA has conducted a study to identify a roughly 20-mile-long transmission line route and two new substation sites to meet current power needs and future growth for the quickly growing communities from Fishhook to Meadow Lakes. Throughout the study, MEA incorporated an extensive public outreach process to get feedback and information from members and property owners within the study area.

The decisional document outlines how the study meets the Matanuska Susitna Borough Code for Type II Essential Service Utility requirements and identifies the route MEA is proposing. Appeals raised in relation to the routing study and decisional document can be submitted up to 21 days after the filing.

Criteria for submitting an appeal is outlined on page 14 of the decisional document that can reviewed by clicking here.
