Virtual Planning Commission Meetings

Public Comment at Regular Planning Commission Meetings

Citizen Comments

The Planning Commission will accept oral Citizen Comments during its regular meetings. Written comments will no longer be read by staff.

To provide an oral Citizen Comment remotely, please sign up on the electronic sign-in sheet between 12:00 and 5:00 p.m. on the date of the meeting, and then join the meeting through the Zoom application by computer, mobile device, or telephone. The Zoom webinar information for each meeting is provided on the agenda. A request to speak can also be made directly to the Planning Director at 206-957-2812 before 5:00 p.m. on the date of the meeting.

Oral Citizen Comments will also be accepted from those who have not pre-registered. After everyone who signed-up has commented at the meeting, the Planning Commission Chair or designee will call for additional testimony by anyone that has not already spoken, by asking meeting attendees to “Raise their Hand” in Zoom. Instructions on how to raise a hand (over the computer and the telephone) will be provided by the Presiding Officer at the time they call for unsigned speakers.

Persons who attend the meeting via telephone and wish to provide oral comments will need to use *9 to raise/lower a hand and *6 to mute/unmute.

Speakers providing oral comments must have their full name fully displayed within the Zoom application. Anonymous comments will not be allowed.

When it is time for Citizen Comments, your name will be called to speak, and the meeting host will unmute you. Please begin your comments by stating your name, address, and any organization represented. Please be advised that your comments are being recorded; each speaker is allotted three (3) minutes. The meeting host will serve as the timekeeper and will notify you when your time has expired.
