Meetings of the Town of Griswold Planning & Zoning Commission are formal proceedings. All comments are digitally recorded as well as by the Recording Secretary.

  • Public comment closed

  • Planning Commission discussion / motion is discussed during the regular meeting.

Each application on the agenda will be heard separately and in the order in which it appears, unless the Commission moves to change the order of the agenda. The applicant or petitioner will have an opportunity to present the request to the Commission and the public. Next, staff will give a brief report on the matter. Public comments will then be taken. Each person desiring to speak will be given an opportunity to make comments. Each speaker should approach the podium and state his or her name and address into the record. If there is a spokesperson representing a group, the spokesperson may present the views of the group and those in agreement with the spokesperson may be recognized by standing. If there are written statements or materials provided by the speaker, that material should be presented for the record to the Chairman of the Planning & Zoning Commission during the public hearing. All presentations, whether they are from the petitioner or the public, should be made in front of the Commission members and not from the audience.
