The County, CCIDA, and the City of Dunkirk are collaborating to advance a study to investigate environmental issues and options for the re-use of the mothballed NRG power plant in the City of Dunkirk. With the assistance of an Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) POWER grant and financial contributions from local partners, an $110,000 study, led by Bergmann Associates, is looking at the major environmental-related challenges that will, in part, dictate what redevelopment alternatives are feasible for the site. Three re-use concepts will be developed with one recommended preferred alternative as part of phase II.

The study was completed in June 2021 and is now available for review.
