    A maximum of 15 minutes is available for the public to address the Commission on any matter on which the Commission either has not held a public hearing or is not scheduled for a public hearing later in the meeting. Speakers will be heard in the order of sign-up, and each speaker is generally limited to a maximum of three minutes. It is ly recommended that public comments be submitted in writing so they can be distributed to all Commission members for review. The Commission may provide more time to each speaker and can extend the public comment period beyond the normal 15-minute maximum if the Commission believes that it is necessary to allow a reasonable opportunity to hear from all members of the public who want to testify. No Commission action can be taken on any matter raised during the public comment period other than to schedule the matter for a future agenda or refer the matter to the staff for investiga¬tion unless the matter is scheduled for action by the Commission later in the meeting.

  9. Public Hearing and Vote on Marsh Development Permit Application No. 2-08(M), Lodi Gas and Storage, L.L.C., for Natural Gas Monitoring Facilities in the Suisun Marsh, Solano County
    The Commission will hold a public hearing and may vote on an application for a marsh development permit submitted by Lodi Gas and Storage, L.L.C., to convert an abandoned gas well to an observatory well to monitor the location and pressure of stored underground gas in the primary management area of the Suisun Marsh, adjacent to Nurse Slough, approximately 1-1/2 miles west of Shiloh Road, and ¼ mile north of Kirby Hill, in an unincorporated area of Solano County. The project would involve placing fill over 14,375 square feet (0.33 acre) of brackish salt marsh mud flats (0.30 acre) and uplands (0.03 acre) to construct an access road to, and a well pad around, the observatory well. The project would also involve temporarily placing fill over 6,535 square feet (0.15 acre) of brackish salt marsh, mud flats and uplands, to enable large construction equipment to access the site during the approximately two-month construction period. The applicant proposes to mitigate the impacts from constructing the well pad and access road by removing previously placed fill material just north of the project area to restore 0.90 acres to brackish marsh wetlands.
