Town Hall Meeting Over Nuclear Power Plant In Pueblo Thursday


You can share your thoughts on a proposed energy park southeast of Pueblo Thursday night. The energy park would include a nuclear power plant.

Puebloans For Smart Energy is holding a townhall meeting Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the community center off Second Street in Avondale. As mentioned before, the park would be built on more than 20,000 acres between Fowler and Avondale in Pueblo County. Hundreds of community members say nuclear power is dangerous, and they oppose the plan.

The proposed energy park would also feature wind and solar power components.

County commissioners will eventually make a final decision on the zoning proposal.

    "people fear what they don't understand" bull!!!all there is to understand is that even the people who pretend to know all about nuclear POWER have no clue about how to fix major accidents...and yes,"nibor", plenty of water in Colorado for plant cooling...not!!!I actually enjoy eating the trout I fish here in Colorado, don't think it'll happen down stream from a nasty, ugly, killer nuclear plant...

    what is actually green to these groups of people? wind? solar? for electric generation? the sooner the public gets educated about the word "green" the better off the country will be just because it says green doesnt mean its good or environmentally friendly or safe look at the corn ethanol no way green it leaves a trail of environmental destruction from start to end and does not create independence from anything

    Sure, why not here? Actually, this is a perfect location for a "string" of that type of plant: No Earthquakes, No Tsunamis and plenty of water for plant cooling (we'll use the water that was going to come here thru SDS that will save everyone lots of money)

    Why bother with meetings and protests? They're just going to do what they want anyway.

    People fear what they don't understand. Wish they would learn...

    At least she was clever with her sign slogan and actually spelled the words correctly.
