On Thursday, June 16, 2011, the Alameda County Planning Department will hold a community meeting to discuss environmental issues to be considered in solar policies for rural areas of the county.  EBCNPS has been following this issue closely, especially since there are currently several solar projects in the development, application, or planning phases for the Mountain House area of Eastern Alameda County.  This region falls within our Altamont Botanical Priority Protection Area and therefore is home to unique and rare natural communities that may be destroyed if poorly planned solar development is allowed.  EBCNPS will send a representative to the June 16 meeting to make oral comments, and we welcome anyone interested to come out and do the same.  A copy of our letter to the Planning Department, detailing our concerns and recommendations for future solar policy can be found here: June_16_Solar_Policy_Letter_to_Alameda_Cnty_Planning_Dpt
