As part of the required California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) process, the utility issued an initial study and notice of preparation of a draft EIR in early September, and hosted the first scoping meeting on September 25th at the Sepulveda Garden Center. Two more are scheduled—one on Thursday, October 3rd, 7 p.m. at the Canterbury Elementary School at 13670 Montague Street in Arleta, and another on Saturday, October 12th, 10 a.m. at the John Ferraro Building, 111 N.
