The opponents of high-rise transmission towers that a major utility wants to build near Jamestown will make their case before the Commonwealth’s highest court. The Virginia Supreme Court has granted a hearing by groups that are fighting Dominion Virginia Power’s proposed line above the James River. It would be strung from towers rising nearly 300 feet from the James. Preservation and conservation groups characterize the transmission line as a visual blight if it runs that close to the first seat of Virginia’s government. Attorneys for Dominion say the line is necessary to meet the power needs of the growing Tidewater region
