Task Force to present VY report

Friday, March 9, 2012

BRATTLEBORO - The chairman of the Post-Vermont Yankee Task Force of the Southeast Vermont Economic Development Strategy Planning Group will next week give a presentation of the group's final report.

The Post-VY Task Force was organized as a subcommittee of the Southeast Vermont Economic Development Planning Group and given a directive to study economic and other impacts which would result from the potential closure of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power station in Vernon, as well as offer ways in which those impacts might be mitigated.

Chairman Stephan Morse will give his presentation on Monday, March 12, at 10 a.m. at the Marlboro College Graduate Center, 28 Vernon St., Brattleboro. The meeting will be held on the second floor, Room 2 East.

The Task Force first met on March 31, 2011, and has continued regular meetings since then. In its report, the Task Force will present recommended strategies and action steps for mitigating the economic and social effects that would result from the closing of Vermont Yankee, regardless of when that may take place.
