City Meetings

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Virtual Meeting Options

There are a number of meetings and gatherings being postponed or canceled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). At this point, we are continuing to hold City Council and Planning Commission meetings so we can conduct essential business, but we also want to respond to health concerns that encourage social distancing. In an effort to provide remote community participation for our City Council meetings, we are piloting real-time online commenting on agenda items through YouTube Live, by phone, and email. Our goal is for you to be able to watch and participate in the meeting from your home without needing to attend in-person.

Due to Governor Gavin Newsom's Executive Order and the City Council's Proclamation of Local Emergency, we can no longer offer an in-person meeting location for the community to attend public meetings. We are offering three remote ways to participate:YouTube Live, phone, and email.
