Board of Supervisors Agendas and Minutes
Citizen Comment Period
We encourage and welcome citizens who wish to make comments on the portion of the Board’s agenda known as Citizen Comment Period on Unscheduled Matters to submit comments via the digital meeting portal or call in comments by leaving a message at 804-748-1808. The digital meeting portal will close at 5 p.m. on the day prior to the scheduled Board meeting in order to prepare comments for the public and the Board to see in a timely manner, prior to the Board meeting. Citizens wishing to speak in person on unscheduled matters must sign up in advance by contacting Sara Hall or 804-748-1200. In accordance with the Rules of Procedure of the Board of Supervisors, the Clerk shall only accept speaking requests for a Board meeting beginning at 8:30 a.m. on the first business day following the prior Board meeting and ending at 12:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting.
We also encourage and welcome citizens who wish to provide input on any and all of the public hearing items before the Board to submit comments via the digital meeting portal. Citizens without internet access may call in comments by leaving a message at 804-748-1808. The public hearing comment form is available beginning the Thursday prior to the upcoming Board meeting. Once the agenda is posted on Thursday, citizens can view the public hearing agenda items and all attachments before submitting a comment. For zoning public hearings the staff report, the staff presentation of the case and the zoning applicant’s presentation, if applicable, will be available to view prior to submitting a comment via the online form. There are no limits on the number of citizens that can comment on each public hearing item; however, we ask that each citizen submit only 1 comment per public hearing topic. The allotted comment space is equivalent to the 3 minute allotted time of in-person Board meetings. The online citizen comment portal will close at 5 p.m. on the day prior to the scheduled Board meeting in order to prepare comments for the public and the Board to see in a timely manner, prior to the Board meeting.
All comments received will be distributed to the Board and posted online for the public to view in advance of the meeting and will be made a part of the Board’s official public record within the rules of procedure adopted by the Board of Supervisors.
