BREAKING NEWS: DATE EXTENDED FOR FUND RAISING!
We have more time to fund raise due to Rocky Mountain Power filing with the State Facilities Review Board. This filling will compell Rocky Mountain Power to show actual construction costs.
WE LOVE MIDWAY, UTAH.
Please help Midway, Utah to bury a New Regional Transmission Power Line that will be built within the city. In this alpine story book town, preservation is important to Midway residents, and they are willing to pay to bury the line, but need a little extra help from those who “Love Midway” too.
IF WE DIG DEEP, WE CAN BURY IT.
Rocky Mountain Power is building a new Regional Transmission Power Line through “Utah’s Best Small City”, home of Swiss Days, the Homestead Resort, Ice Castles, 2002 Winter Olympic Nordic Skiing venue and matchless mountain vistas. Rocky Mountain Power is not the local power company in the Heber Valley.
There is a better way. We Can Bury the line. Over 70% of Midway residents said burying this power line is important, and are willing pay monthly to bury it over time. But we need to raise a portion of this cost upfront.
With your help, we can raise $1.5M by mid April (EXTENDED FROM MARCH 1 !) to help preserve this Utah historical treasure before it’s too late.
It’s the Right Way, for Midway!
WE’VE ALREADY RAISED $500,000.00.
Please add your voice and donate to bury this new Regional Transmission Power Line. Together we can protect and preserve Midway, “Utah’s Best Small City”.
You may know Midway by the annual event Swiss Days, or by the incredible mountain setting that surrounds this hamlet inspired by old world Switzerland. Visitors love that residents have chosen to preserve and protect the simple things and to maintain the rustic rural character, open space and friendly charm that is Midway.
MIDWAY NEEDS OUR LOVE.
Recently, Rocky Mountain Power (which is not the local electrical company in the Heber Valley), has demanded to build a NEW above ground Regional Transmission Power Line through established neighborhoods without regard for Midway’s vision, heritage or people. This massive, out-of-place Regional Transmission Power Line will shuttle high voltage electricity through Midway to OTHER communities beyond the Heber Valley. For two years, the non-profit citizen group called VOLT (Volt Citizens, Inc. Valley Opposition to Large Transmission Lines) has rallied to bury this new Regional Transmission Power Line. The power companies have refused to pay to bury the line.
WHAT CAN I DO?
THERE IS A PATHWAY TO BURY.
Recently, the residents of Midway made known their desire to bury the line. Over 70% have said they are willing to pay the cost to bury the line over time. The Midway City Council voted unanimously to bury the Transmission Line, but with the condition that citizens, through VOLT, raise $1.5M upfront towards the cost of burial by March 1, 2020. Time is short, but with your help, even by small donations, we can meet the goal.
It’s the Right Way, for Midway!
