AGENDA POLICIES

 

REQUESTS TO SPEAK on an item must be submitted on a speaker’s request form and submitted to the Commission staff.  All requests to address the Commission on agenda items must be submitted prior to the Commission’s consideration of the item. Items not identified on the agenda as public input or as a public hearing item generally require approval of 2/3 of the Commission to allow public comment.

 

CONSENT CALENDAR items will be acted upon by the Commission at one time without discussion unless a Commission requests discussion on an item.  If such a request is made, the item will be heard after the balance of the Consent Calendar has been voted upon.

 

PUBLIC HEARING PROCEDURES on each public hearing item include presentation of a staff report; Commission question of staff; a five minute presentation by the project applicant or application proponent, if any, or property owner; Commission questions of the applicant or application proponent or property owner; three minutes each for each member of the public wishing to speak to the item; three minutes for project applicant or applicant proponent or property owner rebuttal; Commission deliberations and decision.

 

PRESENTATIONS BY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC should begin with the speaker stating his or her name and address followed by a statement regarding the item under consideration.  Please speak to the Commission as a whole.

 

Professionals appearing before the Commission should clearly identify their status, such as “attorney,” paralegal,” “architect,” “designer,” or “landscape architect.”  Instances of misrepresentation of professional status may be referred to the City Attorney for possible prosecution.

 

LETTERS OR WRITTEN MATERIALS for agenda items may be submitted to Commission staff prior to or at the meeting; written materials submitted at least eight days in advance of the meeting will be included in the Commission’s meeting packet.  Materials submitted after the deadline may be difficult to adequately review.

 

ASSIGNING OF TIME for members of the public wishing to speak on an item is permissible within specified limits.  A “representative speaker” may be allowed one additional minute of speaking time, to a maximum of five additional minutes (hence, eight minutes total) for each person actually in attendance who assigns his or her right to speak via a request to speak form to the “representative speaker.”

 

ACTION BY THE LANDMARKS COMMISSION on most matters occurs with the affirmative votes of at least four Commissioners.

 

APPEALS of certain actions of the Commission may be heard by the City Council.  For specific information on appeals, please contact the Commission staff.

 

Please note that the Landmarks Commission Agenda is subject to change up to 72 hours prior to the scheduled meeting.  We encourage you to check the agenda 72 hours prior to the meeting.
