The Golden State Finance Authority, acting as the California Environmental Quality Act lead agency, has released a Notice of Preparation for the Golden State Natural Resources Forest Resiliency Project. This project would procure and process sustainably sourced biomass into a pelletized renewable fuel source to replace the use of fossil fuels.
The NOP initiates a 30-day public review and comment period from November 18, 2022, to December 19, 2022. It marks the first step under CEQA and will be followed by an Environmental Impact Report to assess the project’s potential effects on the environment.
GSFA will host three in-person meetings and one virtual public meeting during the scoping period. The public meetings are an opportunity to learn about the proposed Forest Resiliency Project and submit feedback on the scope of the EIR. Each meeting provides the same content.
