GREENFIELD — Rep. Paul Mark, D-Peru, has scheduled an “informational forum” Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in Greenfield Community College’s Downtown Center, to offer a presentation on the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant’s decommissioning process and the end of the plant’s 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone, as well as to answer questions.

Mark, the only Massachusetts member of the Citizens Advisory Panel on the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Decommissioning, said he wants to give people from Massachusetts towns affected by the plant a chance to come and have their say at a more local forum.

Although he expects to convey his understanding of the impact of dismantling the 10-mile emergency zone that includes portions of Warwick, Northfield, Gill Bernardston, Greenfield, Leyden and Colrain in Massachusetts, Mark says, “It’s really for people of the region to have their say and to have a more interactive forum with Entergy.”
