  The city of Franklin will host the first in a series of public information sessions about the proposed Northern Pass project. 

The Berlin Daily Sun reports the meeting is scheduled for January 11 at the Franklin Opera House.

The public sessions are part of the year-long permitting process that began when the state’s Site Evaluation Committee ruled in December that Northern Pass’s application was complete.

The meetings will include presentations on the hydro power project and on the permitting process.

Members of the public can also share comments and ask questions. Northern Pass officials say they will also have representatives on hand to answer questions from individuals.

There are additional meetings scheduled this month in Londonderry, Laconia, Whitefield and Lincoln.

Update 1/6/15: there will also be a meeting in Whitefield. The story has been updated.
