Regular Meeting at City Hall

NOTICES TO THE PUBLIC
The public may address the Planning Commission on items not on the agenda during the "Public Comment" portion of the agenda, and on any item listed on the agenda during the consideration of that item. Persons wishing to address the Commission will be limited to three minutes. Members of the public may aggregate their speaker times, but the aggregate speaker times may not exceed fifteen minutes. Speaker times may be adjusted if the Chair finds it appropriate. After hearing public comments on an item, the public portion of the meeting is closed and the item brought to the Planning Commission level for discussion and action.
The Planning Commission enjoys and operates under an open meeting forum, thus encouraging citizens and members of the audience to address their individual concerns. To the extent necessary, the Planning Commission expects meetings to be conducted in an orderly manner and this includes those individuals addressing the Planning Commission to present their matters of concern and interest.
Individuals who engage in disorderly, loud, boisterous or disruptive conduct will not be allowed to continue their presentation before the Planning Commission. This includes the use of threatening, profane or abusive language in the public assembly. If an individual engages in such conduct, the individual will be called to order by the Chairman. If such conduct continues, at the discretion of the Chairman or a majority of the Planning Commission, the individual may be ordered to leave the Planning Commission meeting.
A person refusing to leave the meeting upon being so ordered by the Chairman or majority of the Planning Commission will cause the meeting to be halted and the Chairman to declare a recess. The Sheriff’s Department will then be contacted and directed to remove the individual from the meeting. Refusing to leave upon direction of the Sheriff’s Department can result in arrest for violation of Section 403 of the California Penal Code, which provides in part that “Every person who, without authority of law, willfully disturbs or breaks up any assembly or meeting, not unlawful in its character… is guilty of a misdemeanor.” The refusal to comply with the Sheriff’s deputy may result in an additional violation of Section 148 of the Penal Code, with respect to interference with a peace officer and the performance of their duty.
In compliance with the American with Disabilities Act, if you need special assistance to participate in this meeting, please contact Trish Paetz at 831-623-4661. Notification 48 hours prior to the meeting will enable the City to make reasonable arrangements to ensure accessibility to this meeting. (28 CFR 35.102-35.104 ADA Title 11).
