Planning Commission Hearing on Chevron Project FEIR

Wed., July 9, 6:30 pm

The first hearing on the FIER for the Chevron Project will be held by the Richmond Planning Commission. This hearing is a vital opportunity to restate how important safety –for workers and residents– and emissions controls are and to express support for the alternative endorsed by the AGO, 6.5.11, along with robust mitigation measures and “other improvements.”
