- Public Comment Period (Each speaker is limited to three minutes)
A maximum of 15 minutes is available for the public to address the Commission on any matter on which the Commission either has not held a public hearing or is not scheduled for a public hearing later in the meeting. Speakers will be heard in the order of sign-up, and each speaker is generally limited to a maximum of three minutes. It is ly recommended that public comments be submitted in writing so they can be distributed to all Commission members for review. The Commission may provide more time to each speaker and can extend the public comment period beyond the normal 15-minute maximum if the Commission believes that it is necessary to allow a reasonable opportunity to hear from all members of the public who want to testify. No Commission action can be taken on any matter raised during the public comment period other than to schedule the matter for a future agenda or refer the matter to the staff for investigation unless the matter is scheduled for action by the Commission later in the meeting.

- Public Hearing on Proposed Coastal Management Program Assessment and Strategy
The Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed Coastal Management Program Assessment and Strategy. Every five years, NOAA requires the Commission to update its Assessment and Strategy. The assessment evaluates nine coastal issue areas identified by the U.S. Congress as being nationally important, and identifies elements of the Commission’s Coastal Management Program that work well and those needing improvement. The proposed multi-year strategy addresses high priority issue areas that will guide future Section 309 grant expenditures to improve the Commission’s Coastal Management Program, typically through program changes, such as policy development, guidance or implementation activities.

- Public Hearing and Possible Vote on the City of Larkspur’s Proposed Reconstruction of the Bon Air Bridge (City of Larkspur)
The Commission will hold a public hearing and possible vote on the City of Larkspur's proposed construction of an approximately 24,000-square-foot, column-supported bridge of which approximately 21,000 square feet (0.49 acres) would be located in the Commission’s certain waterway jurisdiction, in the City of Larkspur, Marin County. The proposed bridge includes two 11.6-foot-wide vehicle lanes, 7-foot-wide bike lanes, and 10-foot-wide sidewalks. The project would involve the temporary installation of approximately 21,000 square feet (0.49-acre) of fill needed during the construction phase only, including pile-supported trestles, access ramps, and cofferdams. The project would also involve the relocation of two utility lines, one suspended temporarily above Corte Madera Creek and a second located permanently under the creek. The project would permanently impact an approximately 44-square-foot (0.001-acre) area of marsh—impacts that the City proposes to mitigate by improving marsh habitat on and off-site, including at nearby Creekside Park, in the City of Greenbrae, and adjacent to Piper Park, in the City of Larkspur. The proposed project would result in an approximately 4,800-square-foot (0.110-acre) net increase of pile-supported fill in the Commission’s jurisdiction, and approximately 13,000 square feet (0.303 acre) of public access area on the replacement bridge.
