Planning commissioners will take a break from their rewrite of the Downtown Area Plan Wednesday night when they return to their revisions of West Berkeley land use rules. 

Acting on the direction of the City Council, commissioners are considering proposals to make development easier in the city’s only industrially zoned section. 

Members will also receive a staff update on progress towards revising the city’s General Plan Housing Element, and will elect officers for the coming year, 

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the North Berkeley Senior Center, 1901 Hearst Ave. At Martin Luther King Jr. Way.
