An attempt to circumvent the established Council policy

The DSP clearly states:

"Projects requesting a public benefit bonus FAR, density
and/or height are required to conduct an initial public study
session with the Planning Commission, in which both the
project and the proposed public benefit are presented for
initial evaluation and comment (both from the Planning
Commission and the public)."

Yet the Staff Report for the 6/18/2018 18-064-PC
on Amendments to the El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan states:

"The only other pending application that includes the addition of square footage is for a proposed Hampton Inn at 1704 El Camino Real, which is proposed at the Public Benefit Bonus level. At the March 12, 2018 Study Session for this project, the Planning Commission generally indicated TOT (Transient Occupancy Tax) revenue is sufficient for the public benefit and provided design comments. "

There has been NO PUBLIC HEARING with opportunity for comment from the public on the Public Benefit Bonus !

Why does the staff keep suggesting that a decision on this matter has already been made????
