March 2014 Cooperative School District Meeting Report

Three emotionally charged and well-attended Hollis Brookline Cooperative District meetings resolved on March 26th at the HBHS gym. Voters came to cast their votes for the remaining articles, including Article 2, a revised bond proposal for Hollis Brookline High School building improvements that sought to address a pending probation from the NEASC, which will revoke HBHS' accreditation in Spring 2015 if a plan for the improvements is not in the works. The bond proposal of 2.4 million dollars over 10 years at 3.75% ultimately failed to attain the required 2/3 majority vote. The COOP school board, and many in the education community, continue to believe that these building additions are needed to secure adequate space for our students/faculty, and to secure a renewal of our NEASC accreditation.


Natural Gas Pipeline to Run Through Hollis

by Mary Fokas

Tennessee Gas, a subsidiary of Kinder-Morgan plans to build a natural gas pipeline that will run through Hollis, NH. This pipeline is an offshoot of the Northeast Pipeline Expansion project that is intended to bring natural gas from the Marcellus Shale fields in New York State to New England. The main pipeline will run from NY to Dracut, MA with several offshoots meant to serve customers along the way. One such proposed offshoot would traverse Hollis, through lands belonging to the town of Hollis, the conservation lands of Beaver Brook Association, as well as lands belonging to residential homeowners. The pipeline is meant to end somewhere in Merrimack, near South Merrimack Road and PC Connection on Route 101-A.

A Hollis town meeting was held on Monday, April 21st during which Kinder-Morgan representatives presented an outline of the project and took questions from town selectmen, town legal counsel and an audience of concerned residents.
