Electric utility Eversource, bowing to public pressure, has decided to route an upgraded power line away from a scenic vista on Parade Road (Route 106).
Laconia City Councilor Bruce Cheeney said Wednesday that a Eversource representative had called him Tuesday to inform him of the utility’s decision.
Eversource had planned to run the line through a piece of the Prescott State Forest rather than along Old Parade Road where the existing line now runs and where utility lines are shielded from public view.
