Homewood urges Glenwood to reconsider power plant approval

Homewood trustees approved a resolution formally opposing a proposed power plant in Glenwood. The Homewood resolution, approved at the March 26 village board meeting, urges municipal officials and other authorities in Glenwood to reconsider allowing construction of the plant. Mayor Richard Hofeld said a copy was sent to the office of Glenwood Mayor Ronald Gardiner. 
 
 

Homewood trustees consider taking a stance on proposed Glenwood power plant

It is rare for Homewood village officials to take a position on issues facing another local government body, but the board of trustees will have an opportunity this week to make an exception in the case of a proposed power plant in Glenwood. At the board's regular meeting Tuesday, trustees will consider a resolution that states the village does not support the plant and encourages Glenwood village government to reconsider approval of it.

Area residents opposed to power plant speak out at Glenwood zoning meeting

Oak Meadow Energy LLC of Boston has proposed building and operating a 1,250 megawatt electricity generating plant on 75 acres of land on the southeast corner of Glenwood. Residents opposing a proposed gas-fired power plant packed a Glenwood Zoning Board of Appeals meeting Tuesday, and while they did not stop the plant's zoning application, they slowed the process.
