Douglas Doe: Eminent domain in Cranston, RI meant not only losing your property, but having 45' poles and transformers installed on your property. And, installing these power lines also meant cutting down more trees. The planned destruction and alteration of the rural view scape is obvious.
- Ten 45 foot poles with multiple transformers were erected along a short stretch of dirt road have completely changed the rural landscape.
- One of the 45 foot fiberglass poles erected along Lippitt Avenue as well as 60 trees were cut down along Lippitt Ave for the construction of the power line.
- The new power lines require a ten foot clearance from the trees.
