The January 24th introductory presentation is one of the initial steps in the Specific Plan process and is intended to allow for preliminary comments from the Planning Commission and the public, which will inform further development and analysis of the Specific Plan.  No final decisions will be made at this introductory hearing.  Future steps in the process will include preparation and circulation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and several additional advisory body and City Council hearings on the Specific Plan and environmental document.
