Participating

Participating in Planning Commission meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic

 

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the County of Shasta is adapting the way that Planning Commission meetings are conducted. Modifications have been made to protect public health while still encouraging engagement from the public. Reasonable accommodations will be made for individuals with disabilities.

 

In light of the continuing increase of COVID-19 cases in Shasta County, as of November 12, 2020, meetings of the Planning Commission will be conducted virtually. There will be no in-person participation for commissioners, staff, or members of the public.
