RE: Bedroom Definition on City Council Agenda, February 15, 2011
An Information Report from staff to the City Council will be on the City Council agenda responding to the referral to the Planning Commission regarding the definition of “bedroom” in the ES-R Zoning District. The meeting will be held at Council Chambers, Old City Hall, 2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Berkeley, CA 94704 beginning at 7:00 p.m.
The report will be available on February 11, 2011 after 5:00 p.m. online at the website below or by contacting the the City Clerk Department during regular business hours.
As the Planning Commission did not recommend any changes in relation to the referral, no action is proposed. Should the Council wish to take up the issue of improved parking management through the Residential Parking Permit Program (suggested by the Commission), the Council could separately consider that issue, but it was not part of the referral.
Pursuant to the Council Rules of Procedure Chapter IV(A) , Public comment will be taken in the following order:
• An initial ten-minute period of public comment on non-agenda items, after the commencement of the meeting and immediately after Ceremonial Matters and City Manager Comments.
• Public comment on the Consent and Information Calendars.
• Public comment on action items, appeals and or public hearings as they are taken up under procedures set forth in the sections governing each below.
• Public comment on non-agenda items from any speakers who did not speak during the first round of non-agenda public comment at the beginning of the meeting.
