Public Comment Notes:

If you wish to address the BZA during the public hearing, please follow the instructions below:
- Log in/call in early.
- Via Web:  Use the “Raise Hand” icon to notify the BZA Clerk that you would like to sign up to address a public hearing item.  The Clerk will acknowledge you and list your name on the sign-up sheet for the specific public hearing item.  When the public hearing is opened, the Clerk will introduce each speaker for comment.
- Via Phone:  Press *9 to notify the BZA Clerk that you would like to sign up to address a public hearing item.  The Clerk will acknowledge you and list your name on the sign-up sheet for the specific public hearing item.  When the public hearing is opened, the Clerk will introduce each speaker for comment.

If you do not sign up to speak prior to the meeting, an opportunity to sign up will be given prior to the close of the public hearing.  When this opportunity is announced, follow the directions above to notify the BZA Clerk that you would like to provide comment on a public hearing item.

Time keeping is conducted through a timer. Each speaker is allotted three (3) minutes to comment.  The timer will commence when you begin speaking; you will be notified when three minutes has ended, and you are requested to bring your comments to a close as your microphone will be muted after several seconds.

In order to give all speakers equal treatment and courtesy, the BZA requests that speakers adhere to the following guidelines:
• When called to address the BZA, please state your name.  For uncommon spellings, please spell your name for the record.
• Address comments directly to the BZA as a whole - open public debate is prohibited.
• You may email written statements and other relevant material to BoardofZoningAppeals@albemarle.org to be included in the record.
• If you represent a group or organization, you may identify the group to be recognized.
• If you exceed your allotted time, you will be asked to end your comments and the microphone will be muted.
• If a speaker does not use all allocated time, the unused time may not be shared with another speaker.
• Speakers are permitted one opportunity to comment during each of the public comment periods per meeting.
