BREDL Requests that FERC officially acknowledge Green Hollow Drive as a contributing resource inside the Bent Mountain Orchard Rural Historic District
FERC’s claim that Green Hollow Drive (incorrectly called “Green Hollow Road” in the Order) is not a contributing resource in the Bent Mountain Orchard Rural Historic District contradicts the findings of The Evaluation Committee of the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.
FERC’s failure to acknowledge the status of Green Hollow Drive as a contributing resource in the Bent Mountain Orchard Rural Historic District is of special concern because Green Hollow Drive has been designated and used as a pipeline access road for the MVP, resulting in alteration of its historic appearance through extensive re-grading and application of gravel.
