Community members are invited to a workshop Wednesday on responding to the draft environmental impact report on the proposed Valero crude-by-rail project in Benicia. The group will meet from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Davis Community Church Fellowship Hall, 421 D St., for instruction, brainstorming and organizing. Refreshments will be served.
The Valero project would bring 70,000 barrels of crude oil per day — 100 tank cars — through Davis. The draft EIR will be released for a 45-day public comment period on Tuesday, June 17. Go to www.yolanoclimateaction for a link to the report and for a page of resources to provide background and up-to-date information on the project.
On June 18, city staffer Mike Webb will provide an overview of the EIR process and ways to respond. Afterward, the group will take a look at the EIR document and consider the most effective ways to respond as up-rail residents.
