The public is invited to attend these hearings or submit comments in writing before the meeting time.

Comments will be accepted after that date but staff will not be able to address them before the hearing.

This is a Type V Legislative Review. After the Planning Commission makes a recommendation, City Council will hold one or more public hearings. The City Council will make the final decision.
