Community Calendar Announcement

Dear Editor/Publisher:

If your publication, radio or television station offers a calendar of community events, you may want to include news of the following conference.

The Committee overseeing the Application for Certification for the proposed Metcalf Energy Center will hold a status conference as follows:


WEDNESDAY, July 19, 2000
6 p.m. - 10 p.m.
School Cafeteria
Baldwin Elementary School
280 Martinvale Lane
San Jose, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

The purpose of the conference will be to discuss the progress of the case thus far and to assess any effects of recent developments upon the scheduling of future events.

Calpine Corporation and Bechtel Enterprises, Inc. (Calpine/Bechtel) propose to develop the Metcalf Energy Center, a 600-megawatt, natural gas–fired, combined cycle power plant. The proposed site lies at the southern base of Tulare Hill in northern Coyote Valley of south San Jose to the west of Monterey Highway and south of the Metcalf Road intersection. The 14-acre site is bordered by Fisher Creek to the north and west and the Union Pacific Railroad right–of–way to the east, and Blanchard Road is to the south.

Public comments regarding the Metcalf Energy Center and other relevant procedural matters will be given priority with general public comments allowed only as time permits. Persons requiring information on how to participate should contact the Energy Commission's Public Adviser, Roberta Mendonca, at (916) 654-4489, toll free at (800) 822-6228, or e-mail at .
