Report
SUMMARY OF COMMISSION ACTION
The Planning Commission considered this item on March 11, 2019. The report to the Planning Commission is Attachment 1 and minutes are Attachment 8. The Planning Commission voted 5-0 (Howe absent; Rheaume recused) to approve the work plan with modifications. The recommended modifications and staff comments follow.

Staff comment: The draft work plan includes the Sunnyvale Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC). VTA-BPAC referral has been added to the work plan.
2. Review the impacts of the VTA light rail prioritization.
Staff comment: Staff confirms that VTA prioritization should be included in the TIA and has been added to the work plan
3. Work to facilitate the most direct pedestrian route to the Mary Avenue Overcrossing.

Staff comment: These items were already included in the draft work plan.
