Participating in Meetings

The health of our community is extremely important. As we continue to put in place the plans and policies that will further our goals of becoming a more inclusive, connected and healthy city, we are offering multiple ways for people to participate -- safely and comfortably from home. 

Board and Commission Meetings

As Denver's response to the pandemic evolves, city staff will continue to review options for meetings that prioritize community health, remain workable for volunteer members, and meet the needs of applicants and the public. For information on how to participate in City Council meetings, visit DenverGov.org/citycouncil

The following meeting information is up to date, as of July 10, 2020.

The Planning Board is holding meetings in person.

Instructions:

  • During public hearings, live virtual comments will still be subject to time limits.
  • Participants who join online can comment using the meeting's online "chat" function or can speak live if their device has a microphone. If you are using a mobile device, you will need to download the virtual platform's app.

If you are attending in person:

  • A quorum of board members must attend in-person with the remaining members participating virtually. (A "quorum" is the minimum number of members needed to have a valid vote on an issue.) 
  • Applicants will be limited to only one representative in person. All other team members must participate virtually.
  • You must register to speak at a public hearing. This gives us the opportunity to plan and ensure there is enough space for attendees to physically distance. 
  • Meeting attendees will be required to adhere to all public health orders in effect, including maintaining physical distance of at least six feet and wearing a face covering.
  • If there are a large number of attendees, you may be asked to wait in the hallway or overflow room until it is your turn.
