Stop Cliffside: two hearings on January 14

The North Carolina Division of Air Quality will sponsor a January 14 hearing in Forest City, NC at Chase High School concerning the Cliffside Coal Plant.  The meeting place is about 8 miles from the proposed Cliffside coal plant.

Therefore a public hearing will be held on Thursday January 14, 2010 between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm at Chase High School located at 1603 Chase High Road in Forest City, NC.

Forrest City is located in the center of this map.  Duke Cliffside is just to the right.

Public Notice: http://daq.state.nc.us/permits/public_notice/cliffside_int_12112009.shtml

Forest City is about 30 miles from Spartanburg, SC up Hwy 221, 25 miles from Gaffney, SC, and 71 miles from Greenville.  North Carolina cities, the centers of activism against the plant, are further away from Forest City. Asheville is about 60 miles  by I-26 to Hwy 74. Hickory is about 60 miles by state roads. Gastonia is 40 miles from the meeting place and it is 64 miles to downtown Charlotte.

For reasons of distance, Clean Air Carolina will be holding a Citizen’s hearing in Charlotte for those who can’t travel to Forest City.

To allow the broader public a fair opportunity to share their concerns about the environmental impacts a conventional coal plant will have on our region and on global climate change, Clean Air Carolina and the Stop Cliffside Coalition will hold a Citizens’ Hearing in Charlotte. The Citizens’ Hearing will be held on the same day as the official hearing and all written comments will be forwarded to NC Division of Air Quality headquarters as part of the official public response.
