Benicia Videographer Constance Beutel covers Workshop sponsored by Benicians For a Safe & Healthy Community
On Saturday, June 28, Benicians For a Safe and Healthy Community (BSHC) offered a free public workshop on “How to Read and Comment on Valero’s Draft EIR.”
The event, attended by over 60, was primarily an objective study of general information on Environmental Impact Reports, legal requirements under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and an explanation of how ordinary citizens are encouraged to participate in reviewing and commenting on these lengthy documents.
While event planners sought to present an impartial forum as an educational experience, there were plenty of questions and comments from participants that took issue with Valero’s proposal.
After the presentations, breakout groups worked on issues of concern to participants.
Local videographer Constance Beutel covered three of the speakers on her YouTube page. See the video below, and check out Constance’s many other videos here: http://youtu.be/9Prey7fckk8.
