City of Benicia staff documents for Planning Commission

City staff’s all-out attempt to sell Valero oil train project

The following documents were released on January 28, when City of Benicia staff included them in their staff report to the Benicia Planning Commission, but they escaped my attention until today.  I noted (and posted links to) the Agenda and Staff Report soon after their release.  They appear on the Planning Commission page on the City website, but were not posted with the accumulation of project documents and public comments on the City’s Valero Crude By Rail page.  At the bottom of the Staff Report are links to the significant documents you will find below.  These Attachments are important – they represent our city staff’s impressive attempt to sell the Valero project to our Planning Commission.
