Watch Public Meetings Live and On-Demand
City Council and Planning meetings for the foreseeable future will be held virtually and members of the community can participate by phone or Zoom video conferencing. City staff, City Council and elected officials, and members of the public will not be in attendance in Council Chambers.
Please visit ci.wheatridge.co.us/calendar for the meeting links and dial-in information. The City asks that anyone NOT wanting to provide public comment view the meeting on WheatRidgeSpeaks.org, YouTube Live, or Channel 8. Those wanting to participate and provide input on zoning issues may do so while viewing on Zoom or by phone during the Citizen’s Right to Speak. Public Comment by participants on Agenda items will also be invited during this time. The agenda and documents will also be available for comment prior to the meeting at WheatRidgeSpeaks.org. That same website can be accessed during the meeting in order to view and follow along with the agenda.
Here’s a document to help navigate participation in a Virtual Public Meeting In addition we are creating a how-to video that will be posted to this page shortly.
Training for Virtual Public Meetings
To provide residents with increased confidence when participating in local government, two MOCK City Council meeting training sessions were recorded. The presentations included in these training videos offer information about fitness and gardening and were designed by City staff to help make the Stay at Home order a little more fun and productive. The first training focused on fitness and exercise during this health emergency. The second training offered tips for home gardening.
Wheat Ridge Speaks
Wheat Ridge Speaks is a new online platform that will be used for those who wish to view the City Council meeting and follow along with the agenda and documents. This platform also offers the opportunity for public comment beginning Thursday nights at 5 p.m. when the agenda packet is posted to the City website through Monday noon. Comments will be shut off at noon; however, the site will be available for viewing only during the City Council meeting at 7 p.m. Here is the link to WheatRidgeSpeaks.org
