BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The mayor of Vermont’s largest city says the public will soon learn what’s going to be done with a long-abandoned power plant on the Lake Champlain waterfront.

Democratic Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger says the city will decide whether to move forward with a plan that calls for a public park and performance space. A team looking for a way to redevelop the coal-fired plant submitted the plan in December. The plant has been abandoned since the 1980s.

WCAX-TV (https://bit.ly/2pbQKh1 ) reports the city has set aside almost $6 million to invest in the $15 million project if it’s approved.

Weinberger says officials are in the process of working out the details to see if it’s something that can be done.
