Message from Mayor McLaughlin

Planning Commission meeting on Chevron proposal -- Thursday, March 20

Dear Friends,

Chevron's proposed "Energy and Hydrogen Renewal Project" is coming up for environmental review at the Planning Commission meeting this week on Thursday, March 20 at 7 pm at the City Council Chambers, 450 Civic Center Plaza. (enter building from rear)

Please come out and share your comments with the Planning Commissioners. I continue to call for a re-circulation of this woefully inadequate environmental impact report.

You can read my guest editorial in regard to this matter, "Whole Truth, Nothing But the Truth" that was published in the Contra Costa Times last Saturday here:

Sincerely, Gayle
