Due to the impacts of the federal, state, and local declarations of public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Casa Grande has implemented measures to protect our community. While public input and participation are an important part of the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, measures are being taken to limit the need for members of the public to participate in a large public gathering while still ensuring that any discussions, deliberations, or actions of the Planning and Zoning Commission are transparent and conducted openly in accordance with Arizona law. To promote adequate social distancing in accordance with Governor Ducey’s Executive Order and the recommendations of the CDC, limited seating will be available at the meeting. Therefore, members of the public are encouraged not to attend the meeting. Members of the public wishing to make a comment on a specific item on the Planning and Zoning Commission Agenda are encouraged instead to email their comments to the Planning and Development Department at firstname.lastname@example.org by 2:00 p.m. of the meeting date. Comments received by that time will be included in the record. All members of the public are encouraged to view the live meeting proceedings on Cox Channel 11 or the City’s Channel 11 Live Stream available on the City’s website.
For those residents unable to access the internet, outdoor speakers will be available at the Council Chambers to allow them to hear the proceedings while still adhering to social distancing requirements.
Planning and Zoning Commission meetings may be held remotely by technological means, as permitted by State law. Until further notice, Commission members may participate telephonically or via other technological means.
The City urges its residents during this difficult time to continue to work together to limit the spread of COVID-19 by adhering to the recommendations of federal, state, and local officials and to watch the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting remotely and participate remotely if at all possible.
