Planning Board: 06/15/21 Agenda

Rules for Public Comment at Remote Meetings:

Starting Tuesday, June 15, 2021 Planning Board meetings that are held remotely via Zoom will be made available to the public so that neighbors are able to speak. Public Comment (which is not the same as a Public Hearing) is opened at the beginning of the meeting for 10-15 minutes, during which the public is invited to speak on any application before the Planning Board regardless of whether or not a Public Hearing has been scheduled. Zoom details for meetings will be included on the Planning Board Agendas which are largely posted the week before scheduled meetings. If you are a member of the Public looking to speak, you will be prompted by the Waiting Room to provide your name and address in the Chat function so that the Planning and Zoning Clerk will be able to call your name once the Public Comment period is opened. Please try and keep your comments to 2-3 minutes so that all in attendance can speak. As always, it is very much recommended that comments are also submitted in writing prior to the meeting or after. If you have any questions, please e-mail planningzoning@villageofnewpaltz.org.
