The following letter was submitted to the City of Vallejo on November 2, 2015 and has just recently come to the attention of VIB. It is from the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission and outlines what the commission sees as a number of legal and compliance issues with the Orcem project surrounding the Draft Environmental Impact Report as it currently stands. Of course, any type of industrial development that could impact Bay Area waterways faces considerable regulatory scrutiny, and there are sure to be some efforts at horse trading on the part of Orcem to get things moving. I guess we will see what kind of negotiations or offered accommodations follow, but BCDC is an agency with jurisdiction and teeth and they don’t sound happy.
