There are two ways to provide written comments to the Planning Commission:

  1. Write the Planning Commission. If you would like to send written correspondence to the full Planning Commission in advance of the meeting, you may email PlanningCommissioners@Burlingame.orgThis option is equivalent to writing a letter to the commission. All commissioners will receive email correspondence sent to this address directly. We recommend that comments be sent prior to the meeting, as commissioners cannot check email during the meeting itself. 

  2. Submit a comment to be read "from the podium" during the meeting. If you would like to send correspondence for staff to read out loud as a public comment during the meeting, you may email your comments to publiccomment@burlingame.orgThis option is equivalent to addressing the commission from the speaker podium. Commissioners will not receive copies of this correspondence before the meeting, but the comments will be read out loud by staff at the applicable public comment portion for the item (with a three-minute time limit). Please refer to additional guidance provided below.

The City of Burlingame will publish the meeting agenda after 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 18, 2021. The agenda will contain the staff report and related documents for each application on the agenda.   

The Final EIR consists of responses to the comments received during the review period of the Draft EIR, and revisions made to the Draft EIR in response to these comments.
