DEP Releases Draft Public Participation Policy for Public Comment
-- The Department of Environmental Protection has submitted a draft of
its public participation policy for the Permit Review Process for
publication in the June 22 Pennsylvania Bulletin. The policy is open for
public comment until July 22.
The draft policy proposes
guidelines for public participation during DEP’s permit review process.
The policy includes procedures for public hearings and receiving and
responding to public comments.
“This new policy will
emphasize the importance and benefits of engaging the public, regulated
community and other stakeholders in a meaningful and upfront manner,”
Acting DEP Secretary Chris Abruzzo said.
The policy will apply
to all permits and authorizations that are published in the
Pennsylvania Bulletin, the commonwealth’s official informational gazette
published by the Pennsylvania Legislative Reference Bureau.
