The Valero oil refinery in Benicia is proposing a dangerous crude by rail project. Under the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA"), an environmental impact review must be done for this project. A Draft Environmental Impact Report ("DEIR") has been created and the community currently has a 45 day comment period. The City of Benicia's Planning Commission will be holding a hearing to allow oral public comment on the report.
Please join Benicians for a Safe and Healthy Community outside of the City Council chambers to protest this dangerous project, and/or inside to comment under the public comment portion of the hearing. Please arrive at 5 PM to assemble for the protest before the Planning Commission meeting.
What to bring: We will have posters, but you are encouraged to bring your own. The theme is a protest on Crude by Rail and its effects.
