Public Scoping
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Las Vegas Field Office will host two public scoping meetings to seek input on the Gemini Solar Project which is proposed on 7,100 acres of public lands 25 miles northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada along Interstate-15, in close proximity to Apex Industrial Park and south of the Moapa River Indian Reservation. The associated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) will identify needs for the construction, operation and eventual decommissioning of a solar system and associated facilities necessary to generate up to 690 megawatts of electricity.
Public scoping meetings will be held:
Date: Wednesday August 01, 2018 Time 05:00 pm to 08:00 pm 
Suncoast Hotel and Casino
9090 Alta Drive
Las Vegas, NV 89145
Meeting Room Location: Madrid Meeting Room

Date: Thursday August 02, 2018 Time 05:00 pm to 08:00 pm 
Moapa Recreation and Community Center
1340 East State Highway 168
Moapa, NV 89025
Meeting Room Location: TBD
All meetings will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. and will follow the same format. Presentations will be given at 5:15 p.m. followed by an open house meeting where BLM staffers and project proponents will be available to answer questions until 6:15 p.m. At 6:15 p.m., a second presentation (duplicate of first) will be given followed by an open house meeting where BLM staffers and project proponents will again be available to answer questions until 7:00 p.m. The final hour will be a public hearing where individuals will have the opportunity to offer public comment. A court reporter will be available to record comments during the entirety of the public scoping meetings. The public comment period opened on July 13, 2018 and will close August 27, 2018. The purpose of the public scoping process is to identify relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives. The BLM has identified the following preliminary issues: biological resources, visual resources, cultural resources, tribal interests, recreation, and cumulative impacts.
Written comments may be mailed to the BLM, Southern Nevada District, Attn: Herman Pinales, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, NV, 89130, or emailed to:  blm_nv_sndo_geminisolar@blm.gov or faxed to 702-515-5023. For more information, please call Herman Pinales at (702) 515-5284.
