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 the Construction of Public Access Piers at Retained Foundations of the Former San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge East Span by the California Department of Transportation; BCDC Permit Application No. 2001.008.44 (Material Amendment)
The Commission will hold a public hearing and may vote on an application for a material amendment to BCDC Permit No. 2001.008.43 by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The application includes the construction of two public access piers-at Yerba Buena Island in the City and County of San Francisco and the former Oakland Army Base in the City of Oakland, Alameda County-atop foundations of the former San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge East Span. The public access piers would retain foundation structures that are currently required to be removed from the Bay under BCDC Permit No. 2001.008.43. The project would also include on-land public access amenities. Two other marine foundations would be removed from the Bay via controlled blasting methods.
