CUMBERLAND — Weather forced postponement of Tuesday’s Planning Board meeting to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26, at Town Hall.

A public hearing on a Central Maine Power Co. transmission substation was on the agenda and will instead be held next Wednesday. CMP is seeking major site plan approval of its proposal to build the Raven Farm Substation at 37 Greely Road.

CMP also wants to install transmission lines that would run from Pownal to the substation, but next week’s meeting covers only the substation. Both aspects of the company’s proposal must undergo review.

The proposal is part of a $1.4 billion plan to modernize CMP’s 40-year-old bulk power system.
