Public Hearings

Public hearings are one way the City collects feedback on specific decisions.  Public hearings are usually conducted by the City Council or Planning Commission. The goal of a public hearing is to make sure all perspectives have been surfaced and considered. 

How do I submit a comment for a public hearing?
