More detailed information on public hearings may be found on the page attached to the back of this agenda. Complete the form by marking the appropriate box and indicating the hearing item you wish to provide testimony on. Please note if the public hearing items have been closed or are still open for testimony. The agenda and staff report will indicate if the public hearing is open or closed. The Planning Commission at their discretion may re-open a closed public hearing and the Commission will make the announcement during Agenda Approval.
