SAVE PORTAL RIDGE  Have concerns about wind turbines on Portal Ridge & near the Poppy Reserve.  Give us your feedback.  Click HERE or   email:  SavePortalRidge@ avopenspace.org

 The Antelope Valley is the western most section of the Mojave Desert, north of Los Angeles, CA.  Man and nature can exist together with planning and cooperation.  Open space is not to be taken lightly.  With careful consideration, nature should be allowed to co-exist without the fear of destruction from the human species.  The desert is not a wasteland, development is not always progress.

Federal and State Agencies Announce Public Meetings for Draft Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), California Energy Commission (CEC) and California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) announced today the dates and locations of several public meetings for the draft Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP) Environmental Impact Report / Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS).

Public meetings will be held throughout the DRECP planning area and surrounding population centers between Oct. 20 and Nov. 13. The meetings are designed to help the public understand the draft DRECP EIR/EIS and to facilitate public comments. Meetings will include a presentation, information stations and an opportunity to submit recorded, verbal and written comments. 

The draft DRECP is an innovative renewable energy and conservation plan covering more than 22 million acres of land in Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties. The draft is the result of collaboration among the BLM, FWS, CEC, CDFW and other stakeholders. The draft proposes to protect areas in the California desert that are important for wildlife, recreation, cultural and other uses while also facilitating the timely permitting of solar, wind and geothermal energy projects and associated transmission in appropriate areas. The draft plan presents six alternative approaches for meeting renewable energy and conservation goals through 2040. Each alternative proposes a different conservation design and configuration of lands available  for more efficient and predictable renewable energy project review. The draft plan also includes an analysis of the potential environmental impacts of these alternatives.

Monday, November 3,  4:00 - 6:30 p.m.

The draft DRECP EIR/EIS is available for review and download at www.drecp.org, and at local libraries and agency offices. A DVD will be provided upon request.
