Public Meetings

City of Concord Rules:  The City of Concord has declared a local state of emergency due to COVID-19 and is closed to the public. Concord City Council and Planning Commission meetings are essential events, therefore they have not been cancelled. However, City of Concord officials and staff will conduct meetings telephonically or otherwise electronically.  The City will not make available any physical location from which members of the public may observe the meeting and offer public comment. Instead, members of the public may observe and address the meeting remotely. Below is information on how to do that.

Below you will find information on how to watch the meetings and how to make public comment. Please email the City Clerk with any questions. 

How to Submit Public Comments

  1. City Council Meetings
  2. Planning Commission Meetings

Written: All comments received before 3:00 pm the day of the meeting will be posted on the City’s website as “Correspondence” under the relevant agenda item and provided to the City Councilmembers at the meeting. Please email your comments to the City Clerk.

Read Aloud During the Meeting: Please email your comments to the City Clerk  when the Mayor opens the public comment period for the relevant agenda item; please indicate the agenda item and title in your email subject line. If you want your comment read aloud, prominently write “Read Aloud at Meeting” at the top of the email and your comments will be read into the record (not to exceed three minutes at staff’s cadence). If your comments are sent prior to the relevant agenda item, you will be asked to re-send your email at the appropriate time. 

If you would like to give your public comment via telephone, please email your telephone number with area code to cityclerk@cityofconcord.org during the public comment period. You will be called during the public comment period and you will be given the opportunity to verbally submit public comment (not to exceed three minutes).
