The City of Green had hoped to get the NEXUS natural gas pipeline routed elsewhere.  However it is dropping its legal challenges to the project as part of a proposed settlement. 

Green has four lawsuits pending against NEXUS Gas Transmission, and won a temporary stay of pipeline work.  But the litigation hasn’t been going well for the city and the stay was expected to be lifted.  So, when NEXUS made a settlement offer, the city’s lawyers advised Mayor Gerard Neugebauer to take it.

A new study commissioned by the City of Green says that routing the NEXUS pipeline through the city would cost $123 million in property and income taxes over the next 50 years.

The study conducted by Cleveland State University focused on the fiscal and economic impact the pipeline would have on the city’s schools, businesses and day-to-day operations.
