MEETING INFORMATION

BLM-ODOE Public Scoping Meetings (October 2008)

BLM and ODOE hosted public scoping meetings from October 21-30, 2008, in Marsing, Idaho; and Ontario, Baker City, Island City, Pendleton and Boardman, Oregon. During the meetings, attendees had the opportunity to learn about the proposed project, review maps, provide written comments and discuss the project with the agencies, contractors and Idaho Power representatives. The Oregon Public Utility Commission also attended the Ontario and Baker City meetings. The scoping public comment period ended on November 14, 2008, though public comments on the proposed project continue to be accepted and reviewed by both agencies.

Maps

The parcel and resource maps below include the initially proposed and alternative 2-mile-wide study corridors presented during the public scoping meetings in October 2008. These maps do not reflect input received after the October 2008 public scoping meetings.

During scoping, the project team requested input on the initial routes. In March 2009, Idaho Power initiated a collaborative routing process called the Community Advisory Process (CAP).

Based on feedback and input received through the CAP, Idaho Power selected a new proposed route and alternatives in spring 2010. Idaho Power's new routes are undergoing the federal and state review processes, which began with the joint scoping and information meetings held in August 2010.

All public scoping materials will remain available as part of the project record.
