Oakwood Hills power plant open house held tonight

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-megawatt 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.
