Because mass gatherings are restricted to ten people, there will be room for about 40 residents to attend the meeting in overflow rooms at the Agriculture and Conference Center. Seats will be arranged six feet apart to comply with social distancing protocols. The meeting will be displayed in each overflow room, and residents who have signed up to speak will be called one at a time to come to the meeting room to give their comments to the Board. Once public seating is full, residents will be asked to remain outside the building, where they must remain at least six feet apart at all times.

The Board allows 30 minutes for the public input session to allow as many as possible to speak. Speakers are limited to no more than three minutes each and may not give their time to another speaker. If residents have insufficient time to finish their comments or if the public input session concludes before residents are able to give their comments, we welcome their comments in writing and those comments will be included in the official meeting minutes.
