Shelbyville Residents Oppose Proposed Power Plant

Shelbyville residents are fighting plans from a Nebraska company to build a $500 million power plant in the area. They say the natural gas-fueled plant would damage and disrupt their quiet way of life.

The proposed project is called the Blue River Generating Station and would encompass nearly 100 acres next to the Bunge soybean mill.

Company officials say they have addressed any environmental concerns and that the air permits will be regulated by the state and by the federal government.

Plans for the power plant will be discussed at next week’s town council meeting in Morristown.
