Sacramento Bee reporter Thomas Oide wrote recently on the forward momentum around breaking ground on the new Powerhouse. Oide states in his article "A group that has worked for years to transform a shuttered PG&E plant along the Sacramento River north of downtown into a science museum has revamped its plans for the facility and now says it aims to break ground in 2017.
The Sacramento City Council is expected to vote to increase the city subsidy for the project from $7 million to $7.85 million in order to help the Powerhouse Science Center to pay for the removal of pre-existing hazardous materials such as lead paint and asbestos at the site. The council will also vote to approve a new plan to renovate the plant that will cut construction costs."
