I received a letter from Cox McLain Environmental Consulting regarding proposed new Stonebrook Transmission Line and Substation Project Public Meeting. Anyone know more about this project?

Brazos Electric provides electricity to CoServ. They have identified a potential capacity shortfall in the area and are looking into ways of bringing in additional capacity. They are proposing to construct one line and one electrical substation.

The city has no jurisdiction or local control over where the line will be placed, this process will occur at the state level, within the Public Utility Commission.

At this point, the City continues to evaluate all of the options regarding the proposed Brazos Transmission Line. We will continue to answer citizen inquires to the best of our ability and we encourage all concerned citizens to attend the Brazos Stakeholder Meeting, a come and go type meeting, to be held from 4:30-7:30 on Tuesday August 27 at the Depot at Frisco Heritage Center, located at 6499 Page Street, Frisco, Texas 75034.

The meeting is hosted by Brazos Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. and Cox/McLain Environmental Consulting, Inc. For more information, contact Christine Polito, CHRISTINE@COXMCLAIN.COM (512) 338-2223 or Richard Chambers, RCHAMBERS@BRAZOSELECTRIC.COM , (254) 750-6369.

If the city has no jurisdiction or control over where the line will be placed, then what are the "options" the city continues to evaluate?

We are looking at all route options at this time. We are also investigating other alternatives to deliver increased electrical capacity.

Could you please post a link of a map showing the "southern" route?

Thank you for the information, Mr. Brenzina. At present, the map available via the link posted above only references an alternate option that runs at the northern end of the Colony and up 423 just shy of the intersection with Lebanon. Is that the southern route referred to in the resolution? What is the remaining part of this southern route?

The City is working to develop alternative routes and alternative options. Below is a recap:

City is working with CoServ and Brazos to develop alternative solutions to the two proposed transmission line locations and substation locations
o These include alternative transmission routes and alternative distribution schemes to eliminate capacity issues.
City is working with our own engineering consulting firms and industry experts who specialize in electrical transmission and distribution to look at the capacity issues and propose alternatives.
Brazos has committed to hold off on the Public Utility Commission of Texas CCN filing as long as we continue to make progress, which we are.
City is not committed to one particular route or option, all options are on the table and will be vetted.
United States Corps of Engineers has indicated it is willing to review and assess any alternative options and will be available to do so.
