Some dates for upcoming meetings have moved out as the substation design group works through details. The next meeting for the design group has moved from Wednesday Sept 6th to Wednesday Sept 13th. The larger stakeholder meeting moves out consequently and is generally targeted for the first week in October. Every effort is being made to set the stakeholder meeting two weeks in advance so residents can plan to attend. At the last meeting of the design group they worked on design details of a GIS substation.
