After encountering no opposition at two hearings held by the Ohio Power Siting Board, developers of a proposed natural gas-fired electric power plant in the City of Oregon will see how a draft permit issued by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency covering air emissions is received by the public.
An informational session to explain the permit and receive public comment is scheduled for May 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lake Erie Center, 6200 BayShore Rd., Oregon.
The Ohio Power Siting Board has authorized Oregon Clean Energy, LLC, to build a natural gas-fired electric generating facility on N. Lallendorf Road in the City of Oregon.
Todd Snitchler, board chairman, said the facility will add “much needed” generating capacity to northern Ohio.
Zoning amendment on plan commission agenda
The Wood County Planning Commission on May 7 will consider a request to amend the Webster Township zoning resolution and allow a propane distribution business to operate under a conditional use in an agricultural district.
The parties in a lawsuit filed by the City of Northwood against the owner of the Woodville Mall are to meet next week to schedule a pretrial hearing.
The city filed a nuisance abatement complaint in January in Wood County Common Pleas Court seeking to have the deteriorating structure torn down.
The walk-through metal detectors stationed on the third floor of the Ottawa County Courthouse could be moved to the main floor as one measure to tighten security.
The suggestion, which was brought up during a recent elected officials meeting, is under review along with other possibilities, county commissioner Jodi Regal said.
No results found.
