On September 22, 2016 the Burrillville Town Council adopted a resolution opposing the siting of Clear River Energy Center in Burrillville. Please follow this link to view the resolution.
The Town has very little legal control over the siting, land use and zoning issues associated with this type of facility, those powers being vested by State Law with an independent, quasi-judicial regulator titled the “Energy Facilities Siting Board”. That being said, the Town Council and our administrative team will take an active role in any and all activities associated with the project so the best interests of our community are realized.
This page will be used to communicate information on the project as it becomes available.
