MEETING CANCELED

The High Desert Power Project, Limited Liability Company (HDPP) is proposing to construct and operate a 680 to 720 MW natural gas fueled electricity generation power plant. The proposed project is to be located in the northeast corner of the Southern California International Airport (formerly George Air Force Base), in the city of Victorville, in San Bernardino County, California. The power plant and related facilities, such as the electric transmission line, natural gas pipeline and water lines, are under the California Energy Commission's (Energy Commission) siting authority.

On January 21, 1999, the Energy Commission staff published its Staff Assessment. This document contains staff's findings and recommendations on the High Desert Power Project Application for Certification (AFC), based on the information received to date. A workshop to discuss air quality issues raised in the Staff Assessment was held on February 4, 1999 and on March 2, 1999. As a result of those discussions, staff will hold another public workshop on air quality to discuss the applicant's interpollutant offset proposal, and other air quality issues as follows:
