- Public Comment Period (Each speaker is limited to three minutes)
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 investigation unless the matter is scheduled for action by the Commission later in the meeting.

Vote on Proposed Coastal Management Program Assessment and Strategy
The Commission will vote on the proposed Coastal Management Program Assessment and Strategy. Every five years, NOAA requires the Commission to update its Assessment and Strategy. The Assessment evaluates nine coastal issue areas identified by the U.S. Congress as being nationally important, and identifies elements of the Commission’s Coastal Management Program that work well and those needing improvement. The proposed multi-year strategy addresses high priority issue areas that will guide future Section 309 grant expenditures to improve the Commission’s Coastal Management Program. A public comment period was held May 8–June 7, 2015, and a public hearing was held on May 21, 2015.

Public Hearing and Possible Vote on Tesoro Refining & Marketing Company LLC’s Reconstruction of and Upgrades to The Golden Eagle Refinery/Marine Terminal, in the City of Martinez, Contra Costa County; BCDC Permit Application No. 2014.006.00
The Commission will hold a public hearing and possibly vote on a permit application to implement a project designed to meet seismic criteria established through the State of California Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards (“MOTEMS”) administered by the California State Lands Commission. The planned modifications to the terminal would not provide any increase or expansion of existing operations. The proposed project consists of the following primary activities: the demolition of an existing timber berth and an approachway providing wharf access to the upland refinery; the construction of a new berth with MOTEMS-required infrastructure; the reconstruction of the pile-supported approachway; and upgrades to a pipeway trestle to support existing pipelines.
