To the Editor:

I’ve read your articles about the B2H (Boardman to Hemingway) power line. How much will it cost the City of La Grande to build those 100-180-foot towers that would obstruct our viewshed of the Grande Ronde Valley?

Do you really care for the pristine view of your valley that your forefathers once viewed when they settled here? Do you want your kids and your grandkids to cherish this pristine country they would be growing up in, or do you want to raise them seeing industrial blight for generations to come?

Construction of the proposed transmission line towers would not be paid for by either the city or county, but by those utilities requesting the construction. That said, the questions regarding the viewshed are very pertinent.
