Michael "Mike" Mancino has decided to put his helicopter refueling project at Tanglwood Mountain on hold.
After approaching the Blooming Grove Township board of supervisors at the June 3 meeting, and learning that the nearby Tanglewood North Community residents wouldn't support the project, Mancino said, "sometimes things work and sometimes they don't."
T & D Power Inc. who has been subcontracted by PPL, wanted to use Mancino's land at the former Tanglewood ski area, as a helicopter refueling and equipment exchange location. T & D Power Inc. will build a 100-mile-long Pennsylvania portion of the Susquehanna-Roseland project. The new 500-kilowatt power line will run from Berwick, PA to Roseland NJ and most of the Route requires a replacement upgrade along the existing power line path.
