(K) A description of all current impacts to the parcel and adjacent parcels caused by open-air agricultural burning, if any, and a description of anticipated changes to current impacts due to the proposed action, if any.
When the rule change comes up for consideration the Planning Department will present an overview of the Petition, and the Department of the Corporation Counsel may wish to comment. You should then be given an opportunity to present the Petition, and then public testimony should be taken.
The Planning Commission has scheduled Chris Profio’s request for a rule to consider smoke and dust when granting a SMA permit. Please show up and testify. This will help raise awareness of the problem which cane burning presents to our environment and people.
