Board of Supervisors to extend the EIR process

There will be a Board of Supervisors hearing tomorrow, June 3, at 9:00 am at County Administration Building, 651 Pine St., Martinez.

The Phillips 66 proposed Propane Recovery Project is on the agenda, but will not be permitted immediately.  The Planning Commission has recommended the the EIR be re-written and recirculated following completion of a cumulative analysis of toxic air contaminants and revisions to the draft EIR.

The board will hear arguments at the meeting tomorrow, and the Planning Commission is asking for the supervisors to CONTINUE the public hearing on the appeals filed by Communities for a Better Environment and Shute, Mihaly, and Weinberger, LLP (on behalf of the Rodeo Citizens Association) to October 28, 2014, at 9:00 a.m.

This is a significant victory for the many who opposed this project, and will, at the least, cause the regulators to look more closely at the impacts that this project will have on our environment. and hopefully mitigate them.  Our congratulations on their good work!
