OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Regulators will hold the first public meeting on the Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant since it restarted late last year.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission plans to hold the meeting in Blair on Feb. 27.

Fort Calhoun, which sits across from Iowa on the Missouri River about 20 miles north of Omaha, has been offline from April 2011 until last December.

Fort Calhoun initially shut down for routine maintenance, but significant flooding in 2011, a small fire and a series of safety violations forced it to remain closed for more than two years.

The meeting will be held from 6-9 p.m. next Thursday at the Midland University campus in Blair.
