Planning Commission hearings begin at 1:00 PM and are recorded. Agenda items begin on or after the time stated on the agenda. County staff will give a presentation on the project followed by commissioner questions. 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 or the applicant to answer questions, and the applicant is given the opportunity to respond to any public comments. The public hearing is then closed and no further public comments are received. The commissioners discuss the project and make a decision by motion and roll call vote.

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 Planning Commission, the hearing will be closed and the items may be acted upon with a single majority vote.
