The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation will hold an Issues Conference at 9:00 AM on Thursday, November 29, 2018 at the Holiday Inn Middletown-Goshen, located at 68 Crystal Run Road, Middletown, New York regarding the Valley Energy Center CPV’s Air State Facility (ASF) permit renewal application, DEC’s notice of denial, and CPV’s request for a hearing.

The purpose of the issues conference will be to determine party status for the persons who properly filed written petitions, and to narrow and define the scope of issues, if any, which may require adjudication. Participation at the issues conference will be limited to DEC staff, applicant, and those persons who timely requested party status. Following the issues conference, the participants will be advised of the ALJ’s rulings on issues and party status, and whether an adjudicatory hearing will be scheduled for a later date.

For more information on DEC’s permit hearing procedures visit Hearings and Mediation Services, Guide to Permit Hearings webpage.
