Chevron EIR Certification Appealed to City Council

As predicted, the Chevron Energy and Hydrogen Renewal project is headed for the Richmond City Council. The only part of the project approved by the Planning Commission , which will consider the Conditional Use Permit tonight, is the EIR. The EIR was certified on June 5 with a ten-day appeal period.


According to a credible source, the certification was appealed by both Chevron and a collaboration of community-based organizations, including, Communities for a Better environment, West County Toxics Coalition, Richmond Greens, Richmond Progressive Alliance, APEN and Atchison Village Environmental Committee. Challenging the EIR certification is a prerequisite for a subsequent lawsuit.
