Power plant appeal dropped; 1 more still outstanding


While Footprint is behind that schedule, it is not clear whether the June 2016 deadline will be impacted.

Salem residents Michael Furlong and William Dearstyne, who had appealed decisions by the Salem Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals, said in a Land Court filing this week that they do not oppose Footprint’s motion to dismiss the case.

That, in effect, ends those appeals.

In February, Footprint reached a major settlement with the Conservation Law Foundation, the region’s leading environmental advocacy group.
