Oakwood Hills power plant open house held tonight

The long sought energy facility in Oakwood Hills is closer to reality as a joint project between Northland Power and Enventure Partners would bring a 430-megawatt electric generating facility to the area. It would be a cash cow for  Oakwood Hills, bringing more than $500,000 annually to schools in property taxes.

CRYSTAL LAKE – An open house is scheduled for 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Holiday Inn where representatives of the company proposing a $450 million power plant in Oakwood Hills will present their plans to the public.

Enventure Partners is proposing a 430-watt natural gas plant along Valley View Road near the Oakwood Hills Village Hall and Snap On Tools. Some residents have already been stating their opposition to the plant citing environmental concerns, particularly water usage.

On Thursday, the Oakwood Hills Zoning Board is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the proposal at 6:30 p.m.
