Commissioners presented with petition opposing gas plant

READING, Pa. - A petition opposing a natural gas conversion plant that's proposed in South Heidelberg Township has garnered 10,000 signatures.

Michael Davis, a township resident who represents the South Heidelberg Community Association, presented the petition to the Berks County Commissioners at their weekly meeting Thursday morning.

Davis said those who signed the petition have major safety concerns about building the plant so close to homes.

Approximately 1,300 signatures were collected door-to-door; the rest were obtained online.

EmberClear Corporation proposed the plant in March. It has since put the project on hold.

Supporters said the plant would benefit the local economy.
