The California Energy Commission staff will hold a public workshop Monday to discuss the Lodi Energy Center, a 255-megawatt natural gas powered plant.

The commission's staff has recommended that the commission license the plant. The workshop will allow the public to participate in discussions about how the plant could affect air quality, biology, cultural resources, visual resources and other topics covered in the staff's assessment of the project.

The meeting will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the California Energy Commission, Hearing Room B, 1516 9th Street, Sacramento.

The project will be on 4.4 acre site next to the White Slough wastewater plant.

Carriage rides canceled due to weather

Due to the rain and strong winds in the weekend's forecast, the carriage rides scheduled to be available Downtown today have been canceled.

"We waited until the last minute, just in case," said Jaime Watts, executive director of the Downtown Lodi Business Partnership. "But the combination of wind and rain would have made it miserable for the horses and the people."

Watts said the organization that supplies the horses and carriages gave the DLBP a rain check, and Valentine's Day weekend is when the carriages will be available again. She said she would release more information about the February event as it becomes available.
