Members of the public may participate in an existing case before the Planning Commission in several ways:

  1. Provide a written submission (evidence such as reports, photographs, etc.) while the record is open. Evidence supporting the granting or denial of an application may be submitted to the Office of the Planning Division up to five (5) days prior to the public meeting. Written evidence submitted after the deadline cannot be considered by the Planning Commission unless the Commission President finds that good cause exists to admit additional evidence at the time of the hearing.
  2. Provide written comments for the public hearing. Written comments may be submitted to the Office of the Planning Division prior to the public meeting.  Written comments that are lengthy but not considered evidence should be submitted up to five (5) days prior to the public meeting to allow ample time to distribute them to members of the Planning Commission with sufficient time for review.
  3. Offer testimony during the public hearing portion at the Planning Commission meeting.  All speakers are limited to five (5) minutes.  If there is a large number of speakers, including many who are part of groups or organizations, the Commission President may, to avoid repetitive comments, elect to ask a representative to speak on behalf of the group or organization.
