City code dictates whether a proposed project is reviewed by staff or requires a public hearing. Historically, to participate in a public hearing, you had to attend a meeting in person or submit comments to staff. Now, for planning and development projects that require a public hearing before Planning Commission or City Council, you can now submit comments online 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.
