Community Information Meeting About Proposed High-Voltage Electric Lines March 21
Electrical Wires
Mayor Smolinski and the Board of Trustees will hold a meeting to update the community about its response to ComEd's proposed plan to install a new 138kV electric line through Roselle along the south side of the I-390 corridor as part of its West Central Reliability Project. The meeting will be held this Monday, March 21 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lake Park High School West Campus Auditorium, 500 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Roselle.

The Village is working with legal counsel, lobbyists, and neighboring communities in anticipation of opposing the West Central Reliability Project by intervening in ComEd's case before the Illinois Commerce Commission, which regulates utility projects in Illinois. At their March 14 meeting, the Village Board approved spending up to $100,000 to oppose the project. While ComEd has not yet filed its proposed plan with the ICC, the utility previously stated it will do so sometime in March.

More information about the proposed project, including links to leave comments on the ICC website and a digital petition aimed at stopping the project, can be found on the Village's website
