The Town encourages interested parties to share their comments as part of every Planning Commission meeting. Since in-person comments are not possible during this time, the Town has provided an online form as an alternative. The form will be accessible starting at 9 a.m. on the day of the meeting (the form will remain locked until then) and stay active until 24 hours after the end of the meeting. Those who prefer an offline option can call 984-233-2510 starting at 9 a.m. on the day of the meeting, and until 24 hours after the end of the meeting, and leave a message with their comments. Please keep these voice messages to three minutes maximum. Comments will be shared during the meeting and will be included as part of the meeting minutes. Thank you for sharing your feedback.
