From the Tribune Chronicle:
With few concerns and minimal safety issues related to the construction of the first power plant along Henn Parkway, there is no reason to keep a second facility from going in next door, local leaders said.
Village fire Chief Travis Eastham said his department has responded to eight calls since construction of the Lordstown Energy Center started in April 2016. Of those, six were medical emergencies, one involved a mismarked gas line and the other was related to a welding spark that started a small fire that was out before emergency crews arrived, Eastham said.
“I’ve talked to residents who live not far from the construction (site) and I feel really confident from a safety standpoint about this second project,” he said. “I support it 100 percent as the fire chief, and I see no reason why there shouldn’t be a second power plant.”
About 200 people, including at least two dozen area construction workers, gathered at Lordstown High School on Tuesday night for a public hearing on the proposed Trumbull Energy Center.Click here to read this entire article.
