Community Calendar Announcement


June 10, 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 hearings.

The Committee overseeing the Application for Certification for the proposed Russell City Energy Center will hold evidentiary hearings as follows:

THURSDAY & FRIDAY, JUNE 20 &21, 2002
Beginning at 9 a.m.
City Hall
City of Hayward
777 B Street
Hayward, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

Evidentiary hearings are held to establish the factual record necessary to reach a decision in this case. This is accomplished by taking oral, written, or documentary evidence from the parties. Formal evidentiary hearings are more structured than Committee conferences or staff workshops.

The Russell City Energy Center would be a 600­megawatt, natural gas­fired, combined-cycle power plant located in the City of Hayward in Alameda County. The facility would be built on a 14.7-acre site directly south of the water pollution control facility.

Members of the public are encouraged to participate and will have the opportunity to comment and ask clarifying questions on any of the subjects. For more information on how to participate, contact the Energy Commission's Public Adviser, Roberta Mendonca, at (916) 654-4489, toll free at (800) 822-6228, or by e-mail at: pao@energy.state.ca.us.

Please feel free to contact me at (916) 654-4989 if you prefer to have your name removed from our mailing list. Thank you.

Sincerely,


Mary Ann Costamagna
Information Officer
