For those in the neighborhood who have some concerns about the lovely Capitol Power Plant, which sits just north of the Southeast Freeway but which reaches down to I Street SE just west of 70/100 I, there is a public meeting Thursday, Jan. 24, hosted by Tommy Wells.
Withthe recent application by the Architect of the Capitol for changes to the plant's permits bringing renewed push-back from the community about the plant's continuing burning of coal, Wells has organized the meeting to "hear your concerns and discuss next steps." The District Department of the Environment will be there to present background information about the plant, and Wells is also intending to include a discussion of "strategies for addressing broader concerns about the power plant, particularly the ongoing use of coal as a fuel source."
The Architect of the Capitol has posted these responses to the questions raised about the permits. (Unfortunately, I can't suppress a snicker at the photo used to show the plant, taken on tulip-filled spring day from one of the parks along D Street SE, showing the plant in a fabulously bucolic setting. My photo might be a bit more realistic.)
The meeting is at 6:30 pm at United Methodist Church, 421 Seward Square SE (just south of Pennsylvania Avenue between 4th and 5th streets).

(Also, I should probably mention that power plant doings will most likely come under my semi-retirement banner, meaning I'm not following it real closely--unless they decide to demolish it. :-) )

You're right about that photo from the Architect of the Capitol. It's essentially a photo of something totally different with just a small portion of the plant being shown. Ridiculous.

The photo selection is exactly what CSX does, only they choose photos highlight the gritty ends of the tunnel for their photos rather than the actual bucolic neighborhood.
ps - not meant to open a discussion on the csx project, just the photo selection/propaganda.

Nice photo, you can see the coal pile. A lot of people would miss that from the street.
