Berkeley’s Planning Commission meets Wednesday night to focus on a single issue, the city’s Draft Climate Action Plan. 

The session, which begins at 7 p.m. in the North Berkeley Senior Center, 1901 Hearst Ave., will take comments on the plan after a presentation by Timothy Burroughs, of the Office of Energy and Sustainable Development. 

Public comments on the plan, which must be submitted by Friday, will be included in the plan’s final draft. 

Wednesday night’s meeting is the commission’s third since its regular meeting last Wednesday. Commissioners also spent much of the day Wednesday touring West Berkeley, where the City Council has directed them to create proposals for increased zoning flexibility.
