Submitted by ken on Tue, 08/12/2014 - 14:11

Laura Copic, our Neighborhood 10 representative on the Carmel Valley Planning Board, has asked me to post the following announcement. She would like community members to be aware of and be able to attend the public scoping meetings so that they can provide their input. For more information, please read the attached Sycamore-Peñasquitos Canyon Fact Sheet (PDF), or visit the Sycamore-Peñasquitos Canyon Project Web Site.

San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has filed an application to construct the Sycamore-Peñasquitos 230-kV Transmission Line Project (Proposed Project) with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The Proposed Project is located in your community. The CPUC is currently reviewing SDG&E’s application, and Panorama Environmental, Inc. (Panorama) is a CPUC contractor assisting with California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) compliance. An overview fact sheet of the Proposed Project area is attached for your reference. Additional project information can be found at the CPUC Web page for the Sycamore-Peñasquitos Canyon Project:

The public scoping period will begin on Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, and will end on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014. The CPUC welcomes comments on potential environmental issues and potential alternatives to the Proposed Project during the scoping period. Information about the methods for submitting comments is included in the attached fact sheet. Comments gathered during the scoping period will help inform the development of the Environmental Impact Report.
