The Planning Commission of the City of Richmond will reconvene its public hearing on the Chevron Richmond Refinery Modernization Project today at 5:30 p.m.

The hearing is again being held in the Kennedy High School cafeteria at 4300 Cutting Blvd. in Richmond.

Hundreds attended the start of the hearing last night. Tonight, commissioners are expected to weigh in on whether to certify the city’s environmental impact report (EIR) and approve permits for the project.

Should the project pass the Planning Commission, it would then face approval at City Council.

While the hearing will not be live streamed online, the hearings are being live blogged on Facebook and Twitter.
