Decision Due on Controversial Nuclear Development Plan

A decision is due Monday from the Pueblo County Board of Commissioners on whether to grant a zoning change for a possible development of a nuclear power plant.

In early March, county commissioners heard testimony from supporters and opponents of the plan involving a plot of land east of Pueblo off Highway 50.

The proponent, Don Banner, needs to get a zoning change in order to pursue the plans for the 24,000 acre parcel.

However, that would be only the first step in a long journey to obtain the necessary authorizations and funding to go forward with building a nuclear plant.

No utility has yet expressed an interest in building a nuclear power facility at the site.
