City of Benicia provides answers on recirculation process

By Roger Straw, March 27, 2015

On March 12, 2015, Marilyn Bardet represented Benicians For a Safe and Healthy Community (BSHC) at the Benicia Planning Commission meeting, reading a lengthy list of questions concerning the City’s process as it determined to recirculate Valero’s Crude By Rail proposal.

Today, the City of Benicia sent the following announcement by email, responding to the BSHC letter:

On March 12, 2015, Benicians For a Safe and Healthy Community provided a letter to the Planning Commission (c/o Benicia City Hall) on behalf of the public with questions regarding the City’s process for the Valero Crude by Rail Project EIR. This letter and staff’s response has been uploaded onto the City’s Valero Crude by Rail Project webpage under “Miscellaneous Information” located at the bottom of the page.

The PDF letter and response by Principal Planner Amy Million can be viewed here.  (Note that I have requested the City provide a version of the document in searchable text.)

An analysis of the City’s response will be forthcoming.
