BLM Schedules Public Meetings for West Fry Wind Energy Project

BLM Schedules Public Meetings for West Fry Wind Energy Project

The Bureau of Land Management has scheduled public scoping meetings for the West Fry wind energy generation facility project, which proposes to install approximately 34 wind turbines and ancillary electric facilities on approximately 3,100 acres of public lands in the West Fry Mountains, within the Johnson Valley off-highway vehicle area northeast of Lucerne Valley, in San Bernardino County, California.

The BLM published a notice of intent (NOI) to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) and plan amendment for the project on May 23, 2008.

The project would be comprised of a main access road from the northwest off of Camp Rock Road, other internal access roads, up to 34 wind turbine generators, and ancillary facilities. Ancillary facilities include pad-mounted transformers, an underground electrical collection system and underground communications lines, a new 230 kV electrical substation, a short 230 kV overhead transmission line from the new substation to a new switchyard where the project would interconnect to the existing Southern California Edison 230kV transmission line (Pisgah No.2), an operations and maintenance building, and two meteorological towers.

The NOI initiated a 45-day scoping period for the public to provide comments on issues to be addressed in the EIS. BLM will host two scoping meetings:

June 30, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m
Lucerne Valley Elementary School 10788 Barstow Road
Lucerne Valley, CA

July 1, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
City of Barstow Council Chambers220 East Mountain View

Comments must be submitted in writing or via email by July 11 to the following address:
