*Revised Community Calendar*

February 21, 2002

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 workshop.

Energy Commission staff will conduct a data response and issue resolution workshop to discuss the proposed Inland Empire Energy Center as follows:

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2002
5 p.m. - 9 p.m.
Board Room
Eastern Municipal Water District
2270 Trumble Road
Perris, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

During the workshop staff will discuss the applicant's data responses in technical areas that include air quality, hazardous materials, land use, noise, and public health. The workshop will also give staff an opportunity to resolve all outstanding issues. *In addition, staff will explain how it analyzes each of these technical areas and how it approaches issues of environmental justice.

The Inland Empire Energy Center would be a 670-megawatt, natural gas­fired, combined cycle power plant located near Romoland in Riverside County. The site is bordered by McLaughlin Road to the south, San Jacinto Road to the east, Antelope Road to the west, and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railway to the north.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment and ask questions during the workshop.
