In response to the significant outreach efforts by the DCDEP and PG&E, more than 1,000 documented comments have been received. The majority of comments were received on the topics of Future Land Use, Repurposing of Facilities and the draft DCDEP Strategic Vision report. The comments were received through a variety of outreach efforts that included comments made at public meetings and workshops, online forms, emails and conversations with DCDEP members.
In concert with the DCDEP public meeting and workshops on Diablo Canyon lands and facility repurposing, PG&E hosted over 20 3-hour bus tours of the Diablo Canyon lands, coastline and DCPP facilities for the general public during August and September, 2018. Over 500 community members viewed the lands and facilities under discussion by the DCDEP. The tours were narrated by PG&E representatives and supported with videos. In addition, approximately 2,500 people hiked the Pecho Coast and Point Buchon trails during the same time period.
DCDEP members also reached out to community organizations and service clubs to make presentations and discuss decommissioning activities. Approximately 300 people participated in these presentations, which included a 15-20 minute talk illustrated with a PowerPoint presentation and follow-up question and answer sessions.
