SG-W:/ Dexter Power Plant?!

Yesterday Isaac Elnecave, MEC's Air Quality specialist, met with a planning group that is preparing to build a natural gas power plant in Dexter Twp on a "non productive" farm.  The plant would use forty acres of the 100-some acre parcel allowing the remainder to be used as wetland mitigation land or parkland for the community. The project would, of course, include a couple 200 foot smokestacks.  Has anyone been involved in the planning of this project?  What's the word?!  What in the world?!  What about using a brownfield instead of a greenfield?
