Where do I comment or ask questions about a project?

Comments and questions may be made to city staff via email or voicemail ahead of the public hearing. Comments may also be made during the public hearing for that item.

Public hearings open at or after the time advertised, never early. The chair will open the hearing and the applicant will present their plans and the board will then ask its questions. After that, members of the public are invited to ask questions and offer any comments. Written comments, including the name and address of the person making the comment, may be submitted to the board up until the time the public hearing is closed. Most public hearings are closed and decisions are issued on the same night, although some complicated projects or incomplete filings may be continued to a specified date and time.
