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.

The Commission will hold a public hearing and possibly vote on a consistency determination for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to implement Phase Two of the 15,100 acres South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project. Phase Two consists of: (1) enhancing restored habitat at the Alviso Island Ponds by lowering, removing, and breaching levees; (2) constructing transition habitat in muted tidal Alviso Pond 8A by placing and grading fill; (3) restoring two Alviso-Mountain View Ponds to tidal wetlands by improving, lowering and breaching levees, constructing transitional habitat and habitat islands, and installing water control features; (4) restoring tidal marsh and enhancing managed wetland habitats in four Ravenswood Ponds by improving, lowering, removing and breaching levees, constructing transitional habitat and habitat islands, and installing bridges and water control structures; (5) constructing approximately 2 miles of Bay and spur trails and 4 viewing platforms, and installing 9 benches and interpretive signage. The project will result in approximately 2,200 acres of enhanced or restored habitat as part of the Don Edwards Wildlife Refuge. Revised to reflect new Consistency Determination number.
