The California Energy Commission has announced a local workshop March 22 on the Quail Brush Generation Project, known to critics as the Santee Power Plant.
“The purpose of the workshop is to continue developing a dialogue between staff, members of the public and agencies interested in the proposed project,” said the public notice. “All interested agencies and members of the public are invited to participate.”
At the forum—which will be available live via conference call—staff will explain the Energy Commission’s power plant site certification process which is a certified regulatory program—similar to an environmental impact report, or EIR, under the California Environmental Quality Act.
Presentations will be made on air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, land use, public health, socioeconomics, soil resources, traffic and transportation, visual resources, water resources and worker safety and fire protection, said the notice.
“After each presentation, staff will answer questions from the public … or government agencies. Although the workshop agenda provides for discussion of these technical areas based upon the public comment received to date, the public and interested agencies are welcome to inquire about any environmental area or aspect of the project.”
The March 22 workshop starts at 5 p.m. at the theater in the Mission Trails Visitor Center, 1 Father Junipero Serra Trail, San Diego.
The WebEx and conference call-in-toll-free number is 866-469-3239 (access code: 491 286 899). The meeting password is: meeting@5
