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 present your comments at the podium or have previously sent correspondence to the Planning Division or spoken to staff regarding an item on this agenda.
