I guess that the historical safety record of the plant would need to be considered. The one I can think of is the Three Mile Island incident in 1979. There is no doubt that property values experience a negative impact.
The same can be said of properties that are in close proximity to waste dumps, burial grounds, manufacturing plants, etc.
I live [stay at] a place that is very close to the Atlantic Ocean in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida ~ we experience hurricanes and that could be a disaster. California has earthquakes and the mid western states experience tornados and typhoons. There are hazrds just about everywhere.
