Public participation for the
January 28th Planning Commission Meeting
4:30 p.m. Start Time
Published January 25, 2021
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Placer County is committed to public participation in County Government in a manner that is consistent with guidance provided by the County’s Public Health Officer and Governor Newsom’s Executive Orders.
Placer County continues to take steps to utilize technology to encourage full but remote public participation during the Planning Commission meetings. These steps are intended to protect everyone, especially those over 65 and those with other medical conditions.
The Placer County Planning Commission January 28th meeting will be conducted virtually and telephonically via Zoom and will allow in-person attendance. It is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. The Planning Commission hearing room will be open to the public. In compliance with the state's public health guidance, the County will limit in-person attendance to just 25% of the room's capacity and will require 6 feet of physical distancing inside and outside the hearing room. There will be no standing room inside the hearing room. If all seats are occupied, citizens will be asked to wait outside. Due to the reduced capacity we ask that citizens only be inside the hearing room during the item they wish to participate on and then leave to allow others to participate inside. The hearing may also be observed online through the means provided at:https://www.placer.ca.gov/2403/Planning-Commission. :
- Citizens who wish to comment may use our Public Comment Reservation Voice Mail at 530-886-1810 to reserve a spot for verbal public comment. Leave name, phone number and item you wish to speak on. A County Operator will call you back at the time Public Comment period opens for the specific item. Public Comment will be opened for each agenda item in the sequence, so be prepared to call in for the specific item you wish to comment on when the Commission Chair opens comments for that item. Calls will not be connected if Public Comment has been closed for that item, and callers will be directed to call back if they are calling for a later agenda item.
- Citizens who are participating by Zoom telephonically will need to Raise their Hand by pressing *9 on their phone. This will alert the Moderator that you wish to comment. Press *6 to mute / un-mute.
- The public may email comments to the Planning Commission Clerk email@example.com, or mail the same through the U.S. Postal Service to the County, Attn.: Planning Commission Clerk, 3091 County Center Dr., Auburn, CA 95603.

All members of the public are asked to adhere to the above guidelines as well as all guidance by the County Public Health Officer.
These steps are designed to make the Planning Commission meeting accessible to everyone in a safe manner. Placer County officials have evaluated these meeting procedures following the March 24th Board meeting in order to continue to improve our remote public participation process. Please also be patient with us as we adjust to changes in process which are continually being provided by the County’s Public Health Officer and the Governor to further protect the public during the COVID-19 emergency.
“It’s important for Placer County to conduct its business to ensure essential services for our citizens,” said Board Chair Bonnie Gore. “We’re doing everything we can to facilitate social distancing and urge residents to take advantage of other methods to address the board versus attending meetings in person.”
“We hope our citizens understand and take to heart the need to participate remotely,” said CEO Todd Leopold. “This crisis may be part of our landscape for several months and we urge our citizens to adjust while still remaining a vital part of the governing process.”
Placer County is committed to do its part to limit coronavirus spread and has also reduced public counter service until further notice, providing online and phone services as alternatives. Essential services such as law enforcement, fire / emergency services, garbage, recycling, water, child protective services and waste water continue.
Placer County declared a local health emergency and a local emergency March 3 to ensure public health professionals have all necessary tools at their disposal to protect the community from COVID-19. Placer’s ongoing COVID-19 response will continue uninterrupted by the office closure.
