BLM Changes Public Meeting Location for Solar Project in California Desert


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has changed the location of the July 29 public scoping meeting for the proposed Lucerne Valley Solar Project from the Lucerne Valley Community Center, 33187 Highway 247 to the Lucerne Valley Elementary School, 10788 Barstow Road, Lucerne Valley, CA. The meeting will be from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

This meeting is part of a 30-day public scoping period that began with publication in the Federal Register of the Notice of Intent (NOI) to conduct an environmental review for the proposed Lucerne Valley Solar Project in San Bernardino County, Calif. 

A second public scoping meeting scheduled for July 30 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at the Family Life Public Enterprise Center, Conference Room 13, 1505 W. Highland Ave, San Bernardino CA remains as scheduled.

Chevron Energy Solutions has applied to the BLM for a right-of-way (ROW) on public lands to construct the solar photovoltaic power plant on approximately 516 acres about eight miles east of the community of Lucerne Valley.

During the scoping period, BLM solicits public comment on issues, concerns, potential impacts, alternatives, and mitigation measures that should be considered in the analysis of the proposed action.  The agency then will use the public scoping comments in preparing the draft environmental documents, which are anticipated to be available for public review in late 2009.

Further details can be found at www.ca.blm.gov/barstow.  Please e-mail any questions to LucerneSolar@blm.gov.
