Public scoping open houses drawing crowds and comments

Feb. 17, 2011 - As the public scoping open houses continue along the proposed transmission route, dozens of people are coming to learn about the TWE Project. They also are sharing comments for BLM and Western Area Power Administration to consider as they prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the project.

Here are some excerpts from local media coverage of these open house events.

Duchesne, Utah, public scoping meeting BLM project manager Sharon Knowlton explains the proposed and alternate routes to interested attendees.

The BLM and Western are accepting comments during the current 90-day public scoping period, which ends on April 4.

Comments of support - whether related to using public lands for public purposes, encouraging renewable energy use, creating jobs, spurring economic development, strengthening the electric grid, balancing resources, or other matters - can be sent via via e-mail to TransWest_WYMail@blm.gov.

A calendar of the remaining public scoping open houses is available on the TransWest Express site.
