Community Calendar Announcement

September 19, 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 Preliminary Staff Assessment workshop to discuss the proposed Cosumnes Power Plant as follows:

9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Bonderson Building
California Energy Commission
901 P Street
4th Floor Conference Room
Sacramento, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)


Teleconference: 1-888-459-9169
Passcode: 27108
Leader: Kristy Chew

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

The Cosumnes Power Plant, proposed by the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), would be a 1,000-megawatt, natural gas-fired, combined cycle power plant located near the former Rancho Seco Nuclear Plant, 25 miles southeast of the City of Sacramento, in Sacramento County.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment 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 pao@energy.state.ca.us .
