The Commission's staff will begin the sign-up of speakers one-half hour before the meeting begins. The comment meeting will begin with a brief description of our environmental review process by Commission staff, after which speakers will be called. The meeting will end once all speakers have provided their comments or at the end time for each meeting stated above, whichever comes first. If a significant number of people are interested in providing verbal comments, a time limit of three minutes may be implemented for each commenter to ensure all those wishing to comment have the opportunity to do so within the designated meeting time. Speakers should structure their oral comments accordingly. If time limits are implemented, they will be strictly enforced to ensure that as many individuals as possible are given an opportunity to comment. It is important to note that oral comments hold the same weight as written or electronically submitted comments.
