The Resource Management Agency (RMA) is developing a Plan for continuing the essential services that we provide in full compliance with County policy directives to reduce risk of COVID-19 transfer. This includes consideration for how we continue processing permits/applications and conduct public hearings such as the Planning Commission and Zoning Administrator in a safe and responsible manner.
Recently, Governor Newsom released an executive order modifying Brown Act Regulations, to allow more flexibility in the use of technology when conducting public hearings. RMA is working out the logistics of making public hearings capable of supporting remote participation by both the public and officials in accordance with health guidelines and the modified Brown Act. Given the limited time between now and the next set of Public Hearings to ensure the system will support adequate participation, we have cancelled the March 25th Planning Commission and March 26th Zoning Administrator hearings. Items scheduled for these dates will be continued to the next scheduled meeting of the Planning Commission and the Zoning Administrator, which is April 8th and April 9th respectively.
Information on how to participate in the April 8th and 9th hearings will be sent ahead of time for those who would like to join. Please be advised that this is the plan as of today and the landscape surrounding COVID-19 directives is constantly evolving, at all levels. As such, the situation may change at any time. RMA will make every effort to keep the public updated for any future changes to land use operations, including hearing schedules.
Thank you for your understanding.
