The Greenport Village board will hear two highly anticipated presentations during its regular meeting tonight.

The first is an update on the next phase of the village’s power plant upgrade. The other will discuss Peconic Land Trust’s proposal to restore the former Exxon Mobil property at the intersection of Fourth and Clarke Streets.

The village’s contractor on the power plant project, Bob Braun of Genesys Engineering, will addresses members on the second phase of the Moores Lane electric plant.

The multimillion-dollar project’s first phase was completed behind schedule earlier this year. The second phase is slated to begin this summer and would include installation of a new transformer.

Peconic Land Trust representatives, who are proposing to rehab the 2.6-acre former Exxon Mobil property, will make the second presentation.

The job involves restoring a former fuel storage property to its natural state, protecting and building on habitats and providing the public with more access to the waterfront.

The Village Board is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. tonight at the Third Street Fire Station.
