Stop the Pimmit Pipeline!

As a courtesy to a group of Pimmit Hills residents, PHCA is collecting funds in an effort to support their legal battle.  The residents are seeking to raise $23,000 to cover legal fees for ongoing court litigation in an effort to prevent a planned 2-foot wide high pressure gas pipeline routed through the Pimmit Hills neighborhood.

While the previously proposed alternate route was alongside and outside the Pimmit Hills neighborhood via Magarity Road and Route 7, the current route will run through Pimmit Hills down Peabody and Fisher Drive, to Cherri Drive via Leonard Road, and back out of Pimmit Hills via Pimmit Drive to Route 7 by the Trader Joe's.
In late February, thanks to the neighborhood’s efforts led by Evan Johns at Appalachian Mountain Advocates, Pimmit Hills won a legal victory against Washington Gas. By a vote of 6-1, the Fairfax County Zoning Appeals Board concluded that Washington Gas may not replace the current Route 7 transmission pipeline by routing a new line through Pimmit Hills unless they go through additional successful reviews by both of the following groups: 

1) Fairfax County Board of Supervisors 
2) Fairfax County Planning Commission hearing 

Washington Gas is expected to appeal this decision and any funds collected will be utilized to pay for the continued legal representation of those residents.  It is currently estimated that $23,000 may be required for this effort.  As soon as the named residents are served, there will be three weeks to respond in court, so they are urgently asking for contributions to cover their current legal team's fees which will be used to begin working on defending the current decision. 

PHCA has posted this GoFundMe campaign as a courtesy to these residents and with the understanding that many in the community support their effort. 

Any unused funds will be donated to the Pimmit Hills Citizens' Association.
