As a result of the threat of COVID-19, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-29-20 (superseding the Brown Act-related provisions), which allows a local legislative body to hold public meetings via teleconferencing and to make public meetings accessible telephonically or otherwise electronically to all members of the public seeking to observe and to address the local legislative body. Pursuant to this Executive Order, Planning Commission members will participate in the May 27, 2020 meeting remotely. Members of the public will be able to access the meeting live on-line, with audio and limited video using the following link:

In addition, members of the public can submit comments electronically for Planning Commission consideration by sending them to, or directly to the project planner as indicated on the agenda, prior to consideration of the agenda. Those comments will be distributed to the Planning Commission members and will be made part of the official public record of the meeting. Contact the Planning and Building Department at 714-765-5139, the project planner listed on the agenda, or with any questions.
