STAFF REPORTS AND EXHIBITS
A written staff report is available for most items on this agenda. Please note that staff reports are posted as soon as available on the Commission’s website at www.slc.ca.gov. The staff report and exhibits may be reviewed and downloaded. Past meetings, including staff reports and exhibits, transcripts, and webcasts, may also be viewed on the Commission’s website.
SUBMISSION OF WRITTEN MATERIALS
Written materials should be submitted to the Commission no later than three business days before the meeting. Please Note: You are discouraged from submitting written materials to the Commission on the day of the meeting, unless they are visual aids as it is difficult for Commissioners to thoroughly consider late submittals. No facsimiles, texts or emails will be accepted at the meeting site. All non-procedural communications become part of the record. Written materials may be submitted to: CSLC.Commissionmeetings@slc.ca.gov or 100 Howe Avenue, Suite 100 South, Sacramento, CA 95825.
Visual presentations/materials must be accompanied by a USB flash drive, flash memory card, or compact disk and must be PC compatible. It is recommended that a hard copy of any electronic presentation be submitted in case of technical difficulties. A slide projector and laptop will be available from our audio-visual technician, and they can assist you in its use. All written materials exhibited to the Commission during the meeting (presentations, maps, etc.) are part of the public record and are kept by the Commission.
