LPC's online calendar contains the schedule of Public Hearings and Meetings for the year. A notice of each Public Hearing with the agenda items to be considered is published in the City Record and posted on this website at least 10 business days before the hearing date. Public Hearing and Meeting dates and agenda items with times are posted on this website on the Friday prior to the Public Hearing or Meeting. Presentation materials for each agenda item are available online at 5:00 PM on the Wednesday prior to the Public Hearing or Meeting, along with an updated agenda should any items be added or removed.
Participation by videoconference may be available via the Zoom teleconferencing application, which allows applicants and members of the public to participate using the Zoom app on their computer or smartphone or by telephone using a dial-in number.
Public Hearings provide an opportunity for the public to testify in person before the Commission on proposed permit applications for work on landmark properties, or on proposed landmark designations. Written testimony is also accepted and may be submitted in person at the Public Hearing, by mail or digitally. Digital testimony submitted in advance of the hearing must be submitted through LPC’s online form or by email to email@example.com. Written testimony is accepted until 12 noon on the Monday before the Tuesday hearing/meeting, but we strongly recommend submitting by 5 pm on the Friday before the public hearing. Testimony received by 5 pm on Friday is made available to the Commissioners for review over the weekend; testimony received by 12 noon on Monday is made available that day.
Public Meetings provide an opportunity for the public to observe subsequent discussion amongst the Commissioners on proposed permit applications for work on landmarked properties or proposed landmark designations after the hearing is closed. Please note that, as the hearing is closed, members of the public may not testify at Public Meetings. However, the Commission accepts written comments into the record regarding Public Meeting agenda items. Written comments for Public Meetings must be submitted through LPC’s online form or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Written testimony is accepted until 12 noon on the Monday before the Tuesday meeting, but we strongly recommend submitting by 5 PM on the Friday before the meeting.
If you need a sign-language translator, an interpreter or other reasonable accommodation to attend or participate in a Public Hearing or Meeting, please contact the agency no later than five business days before the Public Hearing/Meeting date.
The Public Hearing room is wheelchair accessible.
