Public Meeting on Proposed Bear River Wind Farm June 3  

Credit:  kymkemp.com ~~

Press release from Humboldt County’s Citizens for Responsible Development:

Humboldt County’s Citizens for Responsible Development invites interested residents to a meeting to discuss Terra-Gen’s proposed Humboldt Wind Energy Project. The meeting is in Scotia at the historic Winema Theater, on June 3 at 6:30 pm.

Terra-Gen’s proposal includes up to 60 wind turbines nearly 600 feet high on ridgetops from Stafford to Monument and Bear River Ridges; 17 miles of new roads, some of them up to 200 feet wide and bisecting already damaged watersheds; and a huge system of transmission lines crossing the Eel River and connecting to a substation in Bridgeville. Construction could start this fall and continue anywhere from 14 to 18 months.

Comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) are due June 5, and can be submitted via email to CEQAResponses@co.humboldt.ca.us with “Humboldt Wind Energy Project” in the subject line. The DEIR is online at https://humboldtgov.org/2408/Humboldt-Wind-Energy-Project.

The Humboldt County Planning Commission will review the project’s Conditional Use Permit soon after the close of comments. The Board of Supervisors will only address the project if the Planning Commission’s decision is appealed.

This meeting will be a chance to discuss what Terra-Gen is planning to do, and to explore alternatives.

Terra-Gen held only two public scoping meetings last August. Their representative has organized others, but always with the Terra-Gen agenda. This meeting will be the first opportunity for concerned residents to participate in frank discussions about what we really want for our county.

How to Comment on a Draft EIR

The most effective comments provide specific, fact-based information, such as:

  • An error in analysis that may affect the outcome.
  • New information that would change the analysis and conclusions.
  • Any peer-reviewed scientific literature that should be considered in the analysis.
  • Points that should be clarified.
  • Mitigations for unavoidable impacts that should be considered.
  • A substantially different alternative that meets the purpose and need statement and has not been considered.
