Residents can sign up to speak at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s public hearing beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 8 at Juanita Sanchez Educational Complex.

The federal agency is assessing the project’s environmental impacts. It’ll use people’s feedback to determine what issues they need to evaluate in its assessments.

The Commission is also accepting written comments through October 26. Residents can submit their comments electronically through FERC’s website or mail a letter to:
