Members of the public who wish to address the Commission may approach the podium at this time to speak on matters relevant to or within the authority of the Planning Commission or Growth Management Commission. Comments are limited to three minutes per person or topic. If your item requires extended discussion, please request the Chairman to calendar the matter for a future Planning Commission agenda. In order for members of the public to participate in the Commission’s consideration of a public hearing item on this agenda, the Commission strongly encourages members of the public to comment on the agenda item when the particular item is being discussed by the Commission. No action may be taken on a matter raised under this public comment portion of the agenda until the matter itself has been specifically included on an agenda as an item upon which action may be taken.

E. Staff Public Service Announcements

Announcements of a general nature for the Commission and for public information regarding planning, zoning and land use. Not intended for detailed discussion or for items already on the agenda.

F. Disclosures

Any member of the Commission may wish to explain any contact with an applicant or the public regarding an item on the agenda or business of the Commission.

G. Consent Agenda

All matters listed under the consent agenda are considered routine and may be acted upon by the Planning Commission with one action and without an extensive hearing. Any member of the Commission or any citizen may request that an item be taken from the consent agenda, discussed and acted upon separately during this meeting. The Chairman or Vice Chairman retains discretion in deciding whether or not an item will be removed from the consent agenda.

H. Public Hearing Matters

The following items are scheduled for a public hearing. The Chairman will read the Agenda listing into the public record. Staff will present a summary of the staff report and recommendations, including any updated information that was received after the date when staff reports were distributed. The Commission will follow with questions of staff. At that time, the Chairman will open the hearing to public testimony. Normally, the applicant and/or their representative are permitted to speak first, followed by Commission questions. This will be followed by the Chairman requesting comments from the public at large. If you wish to speak on a particular item, please limit your comments to three (3) minutes and be as brief and concise as possible so that all who wish to speak may do so. Do not repeat the position of others who express the same views as you. The Chairman has the right to establish time limits for comments and to allow for rebuttal. In order to be part of the administrative record regarding an appeal of an item, you must sign the "sign in" sheet on the podium or have previously sent correspondence to the Planning Division or spoken to staff regarding an item on this agenda.
