Sunoco Logistics officials welcomed Dauphin County landowners to a meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 11 at the Londonderry Fire Hall to discuss the construction of a new natural gas pipeline that would slice through their property, providing guests with diagrams, handouts and a group of employees manning information stations.


The property owners – some 106 of them, including many from the Middletown area – would be guided to tables with maps, speaking individually with the panel that Sunoco assembled as if they were visiting a craft show, albeit one with a few Pennsylvania State Police troopers lurking about the room.


But many of the guests wanted no part of that program.
