Franklin County residents will get another chance to hear details about the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline that is slated to run through the county.
The board of supervisors said Tuesday a community meeting on the natural gas pipeline project will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 16 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Harvester Performance Center in Rocky Mount.
Supervisors postponed a public hearing that was scheduled that night so they can attend the meeting. Representatives of the companies involved in the pipeline project will host the meeting.
The pipeline has created controversy here and in other counties in the region that would be affected.
The first meeting on the pipeline for Franklin County residents was held on Oct. 21.
