    MILFORD - The Pike County Chamber of Commerce has announced its opposition to the construction of the New York Regional Interconnect Project (NYRI) proposal. Their opposition was “based on the fact that the project provides no benefits to Pike County, or to Pennsylvania residents or businesses, and would have very negative impacts on our region, its economy and its residents. “Installing high-voltage power lines along the river . . . would not only detract from the area’s scenic value, but would adversely impact local and regional economies in Pike County. . .”.
