Last hearing for re-use of Mt. Tom Coal Plant property in Holyoke

The property owner will make the final decision.

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – The final report was released last month on the Mount Tom Power Plant Re-Use study. It’s a process that’s been going on since the plant closed in October of 2014.

There have been several public hearings since then. The Mass Clean Energy Center and the city of Holyoke have been exploring the possibilities.

“We’ve looked at potential uses,” Mass Clean Energy Center’s Matt Kakley told 22News. “What’s possible. What’s not possible. Looking at things like zoning, and wetlands issues, endangered species issues. Things like that. To see what’s even possible and help frame conversations between the city and the private developer.”

The owners of the plant property, a private company will make the final decision as to how this property will ultimately be used. There is no time line for a final decision.
