Guide to Planning Commission Proceedings

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City is under a state of local emergency, as well as states of emergency that have been declared in the County of Los Angeles, state of California, and a federal emergency declared by the President of the United States.  At the direction of the Governor, starting March 19, 2020, the entire state is subject to stay-at-home orders. On March 21, the County of Los Angeles Public Health Officer issued a revised Safer at Home Order. These measures are imposed to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. To comply with these emergency measures, the Planning Commission meeting will be open and public but is being held via teleconference only. This way the public, staff, and Commission will not be physically in the same place. The City is endeavoring to employ technology that will allow the public to view the meeting live and participate.

Each speaker is limited to three (3) minutes.

For Public Hearings involving zoning matters, the appellant and applicant will be given 15 minutes each to present their position to the Planning Commission, including rebuttal time.  All other testimony shall follow the rules as set forth under Oral Communication.
