Call to Order
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 strongly 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 and Possible Vote on Galilee Harbor Settlement Agreement, Second Amendment
The Commission will hold a public hearing and may vote on a proposed second amendment to the Galilee Harbor Settlement Agreement entered into by the Commission and the Galilee Harbor Community Association (GHCA) in 1996 concerning the use of approximately 6.8 acres of land located in the City of Sausalito, Marin County, in and along the shore of Richardson Bay between Dunphy Park and Schoonmaker Point. The second amendment to the settlement agreement would reauthorize continued residential use of the Galilee Harbor marina for one additional 20-year term, approve certain modifications to the Galilee Harbor Marine Service Harbor Project requested by GHCA, and authorize termination of the surety bond previously provided by GHCA pursuant to the settlement agreement.
