Public Hearings & Input

The Planning Commission holds informal public hearings on land use proposals so community members can learn first-hand about such proposals and ask questions and offer comments. Questions and comments become part of the record and will be used by the City Council, along with the Commission's recommendation, in reaching a decision.

Watch on TV or Online

Meetings are televised live on City Cable Channel 16 and webcast live or on-demand. The public is encouraged to attend all open meetings and can address the Commission during public hearings.
