Community Calendar Announcement

November 28, 2000

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 two events.

Energy Commission staff will conduct a workshop to discuss the proposed Nueva Azalea Power Plant Project as follows:

5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
City of South Gate Girls Clubhouse
4940 Southern Avenue
South Gate, CA
(Wheelchair Accessible)

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the responses to data requests from the Energy Commission staff and Intervenors related to the Application for Certification process. Data Response areas will include, but not be limited to: air quality, alternatives, cultural resources, land use, public health, noise, socioeconomics, traffic and transportation, soil and water resources, visual resources, and waste management.

The Committee overseeing the Application for Certification for the proposed Nueva Azalea Power Plant Project will hold a status conference as follows:

Beginning at 2 p.m.
First Floor Hearing Room B
California Energy Commission
1516 Ninth Street
Sacramento, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)
Dial Toll Free 1-888-566-5773
Passcode: Nueva Azalea
Hearing Officer: Susan Gefter

The purpose of the status conference is to discuss discovery issues, including but not limited to: data requests, data responses, and objections to data responses. The Committee will also consider whether the schedule should be modified due to delays in exchanging information or other unforeseen events. The status conference will be conducted as a teleconference so that all parties, interested agencies, and members of the public who cannot travel to Sacramento may participate.

The applicant, EM-One Power Station LLC, is proposing to construct the Nueva Azalea Power Plant Project, a 550-megawatt, natural gas-fired combined cycle power plant on a 13.5-acre site in the City of South Gate at the eastern edge of the city limits. The site is bound by Southern Avenue on the north, East Frontage Road of the 710 Interstate Freeway on the west, Garfield Avenue and Miller Way on the east, and other developed industrial properties on portions of the south, east and west.

The public is encouraged to participate and will have the opportunity to provide comments and ask questions during the workshop. Persons requiring information on how to participate in the Energy Commission's review of the proposed project should contact Roberta Mendonca, the Energy Commission's Public Adviser, at (916) 654-4489 or toll free in California at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at
