Time: 7:00 p.m.
Place: North Berkeley Senior Center, 1901 Hearst Avenue
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) packet is available for review at the Berkeley Main Public Library at 2090 Kittredge Street and at the Permit Service Center at 2120 Milvia Street.
This meeting is being held in a wheelchair accessible location.
To request a disability-related accommodation(s) to participate in the meeting, including auxiliary aids or services, please contact the Disability Services Specialist at (510) 981-6346 (V) or (510) 981-7075 (TDD) at least three business days before the meeting date.
Contact person: Alex Amoroso, AICP, Landmarks Preservation Commission Secretary, (510) 981-7520.
Initiation of Landmark or Structure of Merit designation lies within the range of action to be considered on each structure or property appearing at any place on the agenda.
Due to the length of the LPC agenda, a Consent Calendar may be used to approve certain applications and actions at one time. The Consent Calendar may include:
- Routine business such as approval of minutes and items proposed for continuance.
- Public hearings on structural alteration permits that are apparently non-controversial, on which no adverse comment has been received, and for which no speaker cards have been turned in and no persons wishing to speak are present.
The Commission may place items on the Consent Calendar during Agenda Changes.
Anyone present who wishes to speak on an item should raise his or her hand at that time and advise the Chairperson, and the item will be pulled. Any applicant, member of the audience, or Landmarks Preservation Commissioner may require that an item not be placed on the Consent Calendar to allow for discussion and testimony (if currently posted for public hearing).
Please refrain from wearing scented products to this meeting.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission consists of nine members appointed by the City Council: Austene Hall, Robert Johnson, Miriam Ng, Carrie Olson, Fran Packard, Gary Parsons (Vice Chair), Anne Wagley, Steven Winkel (Chair), and one vacancy.
Please submit written comments in advance of the meeting to the greatest extent possible so that comments can be distributed to the Commissioners in the agenda packet. Commissioners do not have an opportunity to read materials handed out at the meeting. Please submit any material for distribution to the LPC Secretary by Wednesday the week prior to the meeting.
