Preparing for the Meeting

Meetings are hosted through Zoom.

Meeting Information

During the Public Meeting

  • Please be patient and respectful of others while testifying. We reserve the right to silence or remove any participant who is not respectful during public testimony.
  • All public hearings are moderated. The moderator will allow participants to speak in an orderly fashion similar to in-person public hearing procedures.
    • If you are an applicant, neighborhood association leader, or listed on the sign-up sheet, you will be recognized and prompted to speak for the allotted time.
    • After everyone on the sign-up sheet has spoken, other attendees may “Raise their Hand” in the Zoom platform to signify that they wish to speak on the item as well. If you are calling in, dial *9 to raise your hand.
    • Everyone has up to 3 minutes to speak, except for applicants and neighborhood association leaders, who may have additional time allotted and communicated in advance.
  • Technical Difficulties? Please contact the Zoom Help Center.
