CALL TO ORDER
PUBLIC OPEN TIME: Time for comments from members of the public on issues not on this Planning Commission agenda. (Limited to 3 minutes per person)
APPROVAL OF AGENDA:
PUBLIC HEARING: For each of the following items, the public will be given an opportunity to speak. After a staff report, the Chair will open the public hearing and invite the applicant or applicant’s representative to make any comments. Members of the public will be invited to provide testimony to the Commission following the applicant. Speakers should state their name for the record and can address the Commission for three minutes. After all public comments have been received, the public hearing will be closed, and the Commission will discuss the item and take appropriate action(s).
DISCLOSURE OF EX PARTE COMMUNICATIONS: Prior to a project hearing Planning Commission Members must disclose any communications they have had on any quasi-judicial agenda items. This includes, but is not limited to, Design Reviews, Tentative Subdivision Maps, Parcel Maps, Variances, and Conditional Use Permits. This does not disqualify the Planning Commission Member from participating and voting on the matter but gives the public and applicant an opportunity to comment on the ex parte communication.
