It would be good to know when the General Plan is scheduled to be completed and how long the staff expects it to take to complete the N. Bayshore Precise Plan.

My guess is that any precise plan will take > 1 year, so there would be time for the finalized General Plan to be an "input" to the Precise Plan ... even though the G.P. isn't currently complete. The public input phase for the G.P. ended long ago, so I assume that the individuals who are writing it know fairly clearly what the final document will say.

Hope they hold the plans to dormitory style housing for all the Googlites.
