Important Notes to Commenters

1.    You are encouraged to submit electronic copies of your written comments.  If written comments are sent by e-mail, please send the comments to CEQAcomments@slc.ca.gov and write the following in the subject line of your email:  OGPP Update Comments.  If written comments are faxed, please also mail a copy to ensure that a clean copy is received by this office.

2.    If you represent a public agency, please provide the name, email address, and telephone number for the contact person in your agency for the Project.

3.    Before including your address, telephone number, email address or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time (including in the MND and posted on the CSLC’s website).  While you may ask the CSLC (prominently at the beginning of your submission) to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, the CSLC cannot guarantee that it will be able to do so.  The CSLC will make available for inspection, in their entirety, all comments submitted by organizations, businesses, or by individuals identifying themselves as representatives of organizations or businesses.

The Project’s MND will be considered for adoption at a future scheduled meeting of the CSLC.  The specific time and location will be posted on the CSLC’s website at www.slc.ca.gov when specific meeting information becomes known; in addition, interested parties will be notified prior to Commission action.
