Sunoco officials to meet with property owners in Penn
Representatives of Sunoco will meet with landowners directly affected by the company's Mariner East pipeline project at the Harrison Room in Penn Township on Monday evening.
The meeting is intended to give property owners and municipal officials an opportunity to learn more about the 50-mile pipeline, which will run from Houston in Washington County to Delmont.
Though the meeting has been described as a community open house, it is open only to affected property owners and municipal officials, Sunoco spokesman Jeffrey Shields said.
Sunoco representatives plan to meet with township officials, including manager Bruce Light and police Chief John Otto, before the open house.
In some instances, Sunoco has filed eminent-domain cases in Westmoreland County Common Pleas Court to acquire rights-of-way in Penn Township and other communities for the pipeline.
The pipeline, which will carry ethane and propane across the state, is part of a larger infrastructure network that extends about a half-mile into Delaware.
Sunoco had a similar meeting in Sewickley Township on Monday and is planning others in North Strabane Township and Chartiers Township in Washington County.
