Citizen Participation Citizen input into the planning process is very important and the Planning Commission makes every effort to encourage meaningful participation. Comments are also encouraged from neighborhood associations and individuals. The Planning Commission is appreciative of the time required for everyone to participate and tries to reduce the time required and maximize opportunities for input.

If you have questions or comments concerning a proposal, you may attend the Planning Commission Meeting in which the item will be discussed.  You may also contact City staff and have your comments forwarded to the Planning Commission.  Speakers must address only the determinations or criteria the Commission must consider, limit comments to 5 minutes and avoid repeating comments. Public hearings are held on some issues.

The public hearing process is as follows:

  • Staff presentation
  • Commission members ask questions to Staff
  • Applicant's presentation
  • Commission members ask questions to applicant
  • Public Hearing opened by Chair
  • Comments from Public
  • Public Hearing closed
  • Commission deliberation

The process will be similar for items that are not official public hearings.

If there has been public input on a case and it has been tabled, the Commission will not accept additional public comment. However, members of the Commission may ask questions of various people in order to clarify information.

After the meeting, the Secretary will issue a Planning Commission Decision Memorandum to the applicant for each case. The Memorandum will explain the Commission's decision and the next steps in the process.

Questions regarding meeting times and procedures should be directed to Planning Commission Secretary Amy Pelton.  She can be reached directly at (801) 568-7256.
