Together we have reached the final step in approval for the Valero Crude by Rail project. A lengthy application process that first began in 2013, the Benicia Planning Commission will now make its decision. Your continued interest and support has brought us to this critical point, and is very much appreciated.
It is the longtime involvement and support of Benicia residents like you that has truly made Valero a part of this community. The proposed Crude by Rail project is an investment in the refinery’s ability to remain competitive, which will benefit the City of Benicia and residents alike.
That’s why your attendance – and your voice - at the upcoming Planning Commission meetings relating to the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) will be crucial for project approval. This is our final chance to ensure that our opinions and support is heard before the commission.
A copy of the FEIR is available here: Final Environmental Impact Report
All meetings will begin at 6:30pm, but we ask that supporters arrive at our pre-meeting location by 5:30pm to ensure ample time for check-in. Supporters will be directed to City Hall for seating and to fill out speaker cards in support of the Valero Crude by Rail project. Even if you do not wish to speak, it is important that everyone in attendance fills out a form to register his or her support.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting. And again, thank you for your continued support of Valero Crude by Rail.
