Planning Commission meetings are open to the public.  Historically, to participate in a public hearing, you had to attend a meeting in person or submit comments to staff.  Now, for all Planning Commission public hearings, you can submit comments online directly to decision makers through Wheat Ridge Speaks. Meeting agendas are posted about ten days in advance, and online comments close two days before the hearing.  No sign up is required in order to comment.
