Coalition for Landfill Alternatives PETITION & Note from GEC:

The Scholl Canyon Biogas Project is being heard at the Planning Commission’s meeting on Wednesday, October 6, at 5 pm. GEC and concerned residents of the areas near the landfill will ask the Planning Commission not to certify the Scholl Biogas Environmental Impact Report and not to approve entitlements for the project, which would construct a power plant that would burn landfill gas at Scholl Canyon.

During the Commission meeting, the Coalition for Landfill Alternatives will present a list of concerned residents who oppose the power plant. They hope to have more than 1,000 people join this petition.
