Meeting Procedures The meetings will be recorded by a stenographer and will be placed in the public records of the project. Environmental Site Review An environmental site review is typically held in conjunction with the Commission’s NEPA scoping meetings. However, Commission staff anticipated that access to some project facilities would be limited by winter weather conditions during the early part of 2013 when scoping for these projects was scheduled. For this reason, and to provide all interested stakeholders an opportunity to view the projects’ facilities, the Commission hosted the environmental site reviews in October 2012, before the onset of winter. Public notice of the environmental site reviews was issued on August 3, 2012, and published in eight newspapers from the Connecticut River projects’ region. The site visits were widely attended by PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 931 individuals representing, local, state, and federal government agencies, NGOs, and members of the public. At this time, the Commission does not intend to host any future environmental site reviews for these five Connecticut River projects. Dated: December 21, 2012. Kimberly D. Bose, Secretary.
