Public Comment Instructions:

Unlike the Planning Commission’s regular meetings, the ZOCO agenda items(s) are NOT public hearings; therefore, public comment can be made at the ZOCO Chair’s discretion, after the committee discussion has concluded and before the meeting adjourns at 9:00 p.m.

You are encouraged to provide written public comment. Public comments can be provided by in-person attendees as well as those attending virtually. Furthermore, the Planning Commission may not be able to accommodate all attendees who wish to speak at the meeting, due to time constraints. In this instance, you may provide written public comment through the ZOCO Public Comment Form, which will be posted on the committee webpage, prior to the meeting.
