We blogged previously about the pending application with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection ("DEP") for the construction of a natural gas power plant in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania.  If approved, the construction project promises to create hundreds of construction-related jobs.

DEP has published a notice of intent to approve a proposed air quality plan for the project and asked for public comment concerning the application.  In response, area residents asked DEP to hold a public meeting or public hearing to discuss the application.  The DEP will hold the requested public meeting and hearing on January 3, 2013, at 6:30 p.m., at the Clinton Township Volunteer Fire Co., 2311 Route 54 Highway.
