PA meetings begin at 1:00 PM and are recorded. Presentations on the scheduled topics are given, followed by commissioner questions and discussion. A public hearing is then opened and the applicant gives a 10-minute project presentation followed by public comments. The time limit for public comments is at the Chair’s discretion and is typically 3 minutes per speaker. Please state your name for the record when you are called upon. Questions raised by the public may be answered after all public comments are given. The Commission may request staff to answer questions.
Uncontested Calendar: All items listed on the uncontested calendar are considered to be routine. The Chair will open the public hearing on all items simultaneously. If no one from the public addresses the PC, the hearing will be closed and the items may be acted upon with a single majority vote.
Public Appearances for Non-Agenda Items: Shortly after the hearing begins, the PC invites public participation regarding the affairs of the County. Any person desiring to speak on any matter which is not scheduled on this agenda may do so. Comments may be limited to three minutes, or as imposed at the discretion of the Chair. Under State Law, matters presented during public appearances cannot be discussed or acted upon by the PC commissioners.
Please follow the instructions below to submit a Public Comment in writing, email or in person via Zoom. The PC invites interested persons to submit comments which are entered into the permanent record. Written comments received prior to and during the hearing are distributed to the commissioners, staff, and are available to the public via the public copies link in the calendar section of this agenda. Written comments received after the package is made public may be read into the record.
