BLUE ASH, Ohio (AP) — Cincinnati is opposing proposals to build a 12-mile natural gas pipeline that would replace an existing line that has been in place since the 1950s.

Duke Energy met with residents in a Cincinnati suburb Wednesday to answer questions about the company's pipeline proposals in Hamilton County.

The energy company says a study found the existing line is nearing the end of its useful life and that a new one is necessary to meet future natural gas demands.

Cincinnati's City Council passed a motion of opposition Wednesday afternoon citing safety and environmental questions.

Hamilton County commissioners are asking Duke to increase its public notice to residents living near the proposed routes.

Duke says it is reviewing those resolutions and will determine how to proceed before submitting two final proposals next month.
