Remote Public Hearing/Meeting Process
In response to the Phoenix City Council's declaration of a local emergency due to COVID-19 on March 2020, the Planning and Development Department will hold all public hearings and meetings remotely to ensure the safety for board members, the public and employees.
There will be no in person public meetings throughout the duration of the local emergency declaration.
Those meetings include Zoning Adjustment Hearings, Board of Adjustment Hearings, Abandonment Hearings, Planning Commission, Historic Preservation Commission, Historic Preservation Hearing Officer Hearings, Heritage Commission, Planning Hearing Officer Hearings, Design Review Committee meetings and Village Planning Committee Meetings.
The meetings will be facilitated through web-based Webex. A phone line will also be provided to accommodate residents who may not have internet service. A tutorial video below shows how to log-in and how to participate.
