ON SUNDAY, MARCH 22 from 1PM – 3PM

Join your neighbors in a community

TOWN HALL MEETING

Senior Center, Shannon Park 

1918 Route 284, Slate Hill, NY

to discuss the

CPV POWER PLANT

(COMPETITIVE POWER VENTURES)

a 650 MW gas plant about to be built in WAWAYANDA

between Routes 17M, 6 and 84 

EMISSIONS WOULD AFFECT ALL LIVING WITHIN A 50-MILE RADIUS:

Wawayanda, Middletown, Minisink, Otisville, Mt. Hope, Florida, Goshen, Warwick, Chester, Monroe, Harriman, and beyond

  • Air Quality: 2.1 Million tons of CO2e and over 400 tons of toxic chemicals
  • Possible soil contamination: Ground level ozone, radioactivity, and lead
  • Impacts upon our precious black dirt farms, and food production:
  • Endangered species and Wetlands would be destroyed 

THIS WOULD AFFECT OUR HEALTH and SAFETY:

  • Increased risks of asthma and autism in children, frail and elderly may

            face increased risk of cardiovascular and respiratory illnesses

  • 15000 gallon ammonia tank and million gallon diesel tank 

THIS WOULD AFFECT OUR WALLETS:

  • Plummeting property values
  • Will add only 23 permanent jobs
  • Paid for by taxpayer and ratepayer subsidies - Up to 16 percent rate hike imposed by FERC for the Lower Hudson Valley to pay for this.
  • The resulting electricity would be sold in the wholesale market, not directly to local residents, studies have shown there is no supply need in our area.

 THIS IS URGENT. The Governor has not yet approved it!

Let’s meet, discuss, and take back the decision-making in our region.
