I want to speak at a Planning Commission Meeting. What do I do?

To speak at a Planning Commission meeting, you are asked to fill out a speakers slip at the meeting, prior to the time the agenda item you are interested in begins. Speakers usually are allotted three minutes to testify. You will be asked to provide your name and city of residence for the record. The agenda also has a time for ‘public comment’ to the Planning Commission on matters within the responsibility of the Planning Commission but which are not subject to a particular public hearing that night.

How can I serve on the Planning Commission?
To become a member of the Planning Commission citizens are asked to file an application with the City Clerk, prior to an interview and selection by the City Council.
