BAY CONSERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION (BCDC) GUIDELINES
Projects which are located along the San Francisco Bay also require review by the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC), a State agency.  BCDC requires that public access be provided along the Bay edge, and has standards for how this public access should be developed.  The BCDC Guidelines specify these requirements for properties within the City of Burlingame.

 

CHANGE IN COMMERCIAL USE 
Every change in commercial use should be verified by the Planning Department as a permitted use for the zone in which the building is located. Please refer to the City Code to check allowed uses for a particular zone. Additionally, a change in commercial use may result in a requirement for more on-site parking. Please refer to the Parking Ordinance to check parking requirements for a particular use.
