On December 6, 2001, the Committee held a Scheduling Conference to discuss the progress of this case. At the Conference a schedule mutually agreeable to all parties was discussed and agreed upon. However, subsequent to the Conference, both the Applicant and Staff informed the Committee that the parties will need more time than previously anticipated to meet with representatives of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USF&WS) to address additional wetland mitigation matters concerning the proposed project.


At the Scheduling Conference, the Committee expects the parties to summarize the results of a workshop scheduled for January 8, 2002, and to recommend a realistic schedule for the completion of this case. The Committee encourages the parties discuss such a schedule prior to the January 14th conference with the objective of presenting to the Committee a schedule mutually agreeable to all parties as well as reviewing agencies.
