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 workshops.

Energy Commission staff will conduct workshops to discuss the proposed Inland Empire Energy Center as follows:

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 14, 2002
5 p.m. - 10 p.m.
&
MONDAY, AUGUST 26, 2002
4 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Location:
Board Room
Eastern Municipal Water District
2270 Trumble Road
Perris, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

The purpose of these workshops is to receive comments on the recently released Preliminary Staff Assessment. If necessary, the these comments will be used to revise the Preliminary Staff Assessment and be incorporated into the Final Staff Assessment.

The Inland Empire Energy Center would be a 670-megawatt, natural gas-fired, 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 workshops. 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 [pao@energy.state.ca.us].
