[ARCHIVED] Opportunities for Continued Participation in Public Meetings While Practicing Social Distancing

Favorite Town Hall

As you know, there are a number of meetings and gatherings being postponed or cancelled due to the Coronavirus.  At this point, we are continuing to hold certain Town meetings in order to conduct essential business. 

There are many ways for our community to watch and participate without attending the meeting in-person. All of our meetings are streamed live on the Town’s website, replayed on the government channel of your cable provider, archived on the Town’s YouTube Channel, and available on our Agendas, Notices and Minutes page.

For those who are limiting their attendance at public gatherings, we want to remind you that you can always submit written comments on an agenda item via email to Town staff for distribution to the Town Council, or any other Town Board/Commission/Committee and the public prior to their respective meetings.  If you would like to support, oppose, or otherwise comment on a Town Council agenda item, please consider sending in your comment rather than attending the meeting in person. As is the Town’s practice in accordance with the Brown Act, all communication, whether it is a formal letter or a one-line informal email, is made available to the Town Council and the public, and archived in the Town’s records after the meeting. Also, if you are part of a large group that would like to comment on an agenda item, please consider commenting in writing or sending one spokesperson to speak on behalf of the group. This will be as impactful to the Town Council as having a large group in attendance.


Beginning with the March 17 Town Council meeting, the Town will also accept public comment via email during the meeting starting from 6:30 p.m. until public comment is called for the particular agenda item. All public comment received via email during the meeting will be read aloud by staff at the appropriate time on the agenda for each agenda item forwarded to the Town Council, posted to the Town website, and placed in the Town’s permanent records. Emailed public comment for the Town Council meeting should be sent to  The same process will be carried out for all emailed public comment for upcoming Planning Commission and Parks and Recreation Commission meetings.  Other technological opportunities to allow real time comment and participation via live stream are currently being explored and may be introduced at a later date.


Thank you for your understanding and if you have any questions please call the Town Hall Administrative Office at 415-927-5050.
