Participating in Planning Commission Meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic

·  Watch a livestream of the meeting online or view the recording any time after the meeting concludes at

·  Submit public comment in writing on any agenda item or any item within the Commission’s subject matter jurisdiction, regardless of whether it is on the agenda for Commission consideration or action.  

 How to submit public comments:
