public hearing but which, following an initial evaluation by staff, have been found to be consistent with existing City policy
and the City General Plan and are, therefore, recommended for routine approval. Prior to actual Planning Commission

you want a particular agenda item removed from “Consent”, please speak up and advise the Chairman. That item will
then be withdrawn from “Consent” and reviewed in detail as scheduled. The remaining “Consent” items for which there
are no voice objections will be handled by a single action of the Commission.
