In order to ensure that Charlton Town officials and members of the community remain engaged and informed of the Project’s development and construction plans, the Northeast Energy Center (NEC) has been working to establish and maintain regular and open lines of communication. The Project team has been in regular contact with the Charlton Town Administrator; who in return has been providing regular briefs to the Board of Selectmen and other Charlton officials on project activities. Additionally, NEC has held multiple meetings with the Board of Selectmen, the Charlton Economic Development Council, the Charlton Fire Department, the Town Planner, the Building Commissioner, and the Tax Assessor. Now that the NEC Project is in construction, the table below will be updated over the course of the project with the latest milestone dates.
