The DOE announced that the Public Scoping part of its process has begun:

The public is invited to participate in the Scoping Process, both to help define the environmental issues to be analyzed and to identify the range of reasonable alternatives to be considered in the EIS. The Scoping Process began with publication of the Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement and Conduct Public Scoping Meetings, and Notice of Floodplains and Wetlands Involvement for the Project in the Federal Register on February 11, 2011 and will extend for a sixty-day period, ending on April 12, 2011.

On the same page, the DOE also listed five upcoming public scoping meetings:

  1. Pembroke, Pembroke Academy cafeteria, 209 Academy Road, Monday, March 14, 6-9 pm (directions);
  2. Franklin, Franklin Opera House, 316 Central Street, Tuesday, March 15, 6-9 pm (directions);
  3. Lincoln, The Mountain Club on Loon, Hancock Room, 90 Loon Mountain Road, Wednesday, March 16, 6-9 pm (directions);

  5. Colebrook, Colebrook Elementary School, 27 Dumont Street, Saturday, March 19, 1-4 pm. (directions)

According to the page:

The scoping meetings will be structured in two parts: first, an informal discussion “workshop” period that will not be recorded; and second, a formal commenting session, which will be transcribed by a court stenographer. The meetings will provide interested parties the opportunity to view proposed project exhibits and make comments.
