Duke Pipeline Intervention Statement Duke Energy has not yet submitted its final application to the Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) detailing its preferred and alternate routes. Once OPSB determines that Duke's application is final, Blue Ash will then be able to evaluate and to analyze the specific routes and their potential impacts/effects. Under Ohio law, Blue Ash is not able to intervene until OPSB has determined that Duke's application is final. At that point, City Council will then decide at a formal meeting whether to intervene, in accordance with the timing and procedures contemplated under Ohio law. The City appreciates your feedback and will take it into consideration. However, Council is not able to discuss or decide upon policy matters outside of a formal City meeting and therefore will not be responding to correspondence soliciting such.
