The Planning Commission considers a range of requests for development permits, appeals, and planning policy matters, and conducts public hearings on many of its agenda items. Due to the number, complexity and public interest associated with many agenda items, meetings of the Commission are generally lengthy. The Commission makes every effort to proceed as expeditiously as possible; your patience and understanding is appreciated.
REQUESTS TO SPEAK on an item must be submitted on a speaker's request form and submit it to the Commission secretary. All requests to address the Commission on public hearing items must be submitted prior to the Commission's consideration of the item.
CONSENT CALENDAR items will be acted upon by the Commission at one time without discussion unless a Commissioner requests discussion on an item or a member of the public has submitted a request to speak on an item. If such a request is made, the item will be heard after the balance of the Consent Calendar has been voted upon.
PUBLIC HEARING PROCEDURES on each public hearing item include presentation of a staff report; Commission questions of staff; a five-minute presentation by the project applicant, if any; Commission questions of the applicant; three minutes for each member of the public wishing to speak to the item; three minutes for project applicant rebuttal; Commission deliberations and decision.
PRESENTATIONS BY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC should begin with the speaker stating his or her name and address followed by a statement regarding the item under consideration. Please speak to the Commission as a whole.
PROFESSIONALS APPEARING BEFORE THE COMMISSION should clearly identify their status, such as "attorney", "paralegal", "architect", "designer", or "landscape architect". Instances of misrepresentation of professional status may be referred to the City Attorney for possible prosecution.
LETTERS OR WRITTEN MATERIALS regarding agenda items may be submitted to the City Planning Division staff prior to or at the Commission meeting; written materials submitted at least eight days in advance of the meeting will be included in the Commission's meeting packet. Materials submitted after the deadline may be difficult for the Commission to adequately review.
ASSIGNING OF TIME for members of the public wishing to speak to an item is permissible within specified limits. A "representative speaker" may be allowed one additional minute of speaking time, to a maximum of five additional minutes (hence, eight minutes total) for each person actually in attendance who assigns his or her right to speak via a request to speak form to the "representative speaker."
ACTION BY THE PLANNING COMMISSION on most matters occurs with the affirmative votes of at least four Commissioners.
DESIGN ASPECTS OF PROJECTS considered by the Planning Commission must also be approved by the Architectural Review Board. For more information on this process, contact the City Planning Division.
APPEALS of certain actions of the Commission are appealable to the City Council. For specific information on appeals, please contact the City Planning Division.
