  1. Email your comments by 3:00 p.m. the Tuesday before the meeting to the Planning Commissioners Inbox.
  2. Call-in Live directly to the meeting. Please note that this phone number is only in service during the meeting, beginning at 4:00 p.m.
    1. Tune into the meeting (instructions above).
    2. Wait for the Chair to announce when your item is ready for live call in.

    4. You will be asked if you are calling for the current case on hearing.
    5. Mute your TV or live stream when it is your turn to speak.
    6. If you send materials for display during your comment, there will be a delay on the live broadcast or stream. However, the Planning Commissioners will be able to see your materials in real time as you speak.
    7. Once your testimony begins, you state your name, address, and whether you are for or against the case.
    8. During your testimony, you will receive a 30-second warning.

Please note: In an effort to promote social distancing, no remote location will be available for the Planning Commission meeting.
