COMMITTEE SCHEDULING ORDER
On December 13, 2006, the Application for Certification (AFC) was deemed data adequate for the twelve-month review process consistent with Public Resources Code section 25540.6. The Committee conducted a public informational hearing on January 25, 2007, to discuss the schedule and other issues of concern. The attached Committee Schedule is based on Staff's proposed schedule and related discussion at the informational hearing.
The Committee Schedule contains a list of events that must occur to complete the certification process in twelve months. It covers the period leading up to the Prehearing Conference and describes, without specific dates, the events that follow. The balance of the schedule will be determined at the Prehearing Conference.
Several milestones are dependent upon reviews to be conducted by federal, state, and local agencies as well as the timely provision of additional information by the Applicant. Key agency reviews are Colusa County's land use determinations and the Colusa County Air Pollution Control District's Determination of Compliance.
We may modify the schedule at any time upon either our own motion or that of a party. [Cal. Code Regs., tit. 20, § 1709(c)]. The schedule includes periodic status reports to determine whether case development is progressing satisfactorily, and to bring potential schedule delays or other relevant matters to our attention. If the parties and agencies are able finish their work earlier than this schedule projects, we stand ready to advance the hearing and decision dates accordingly.
