PARTICIPATING IN COMMISSION MEETINGS DURING COVID-19
The Economic Development Commission has transitioned to a hybrid meeting that allows limited in-person and telephonic participation at all public meetings. Because in-person citizen attendance in the Monal Lisa Drexler Assembly Chambers is limited, telephonic or remote citizen participation continues to be encouraged.
- • Social distancing of a minimum of 6 feet is required at the Juanita Helms Administration Center and in the Mona Lisa Drexler Assembly Chambers.
- • Face coverings or masks are required at the Juanita Helms Administration Center and in the Mona Lisa Drexler Assembly Chambers.
- • 15 public seats are available in the Chambers. Once all 15 seats are occupied, additional citizens will be asked to socially distance in the lobby until a chair in the Chambers becomes available. Audio of the meeting will not be available in the lobby.
- • There is a one way traffic flow in the Chambers. Citizens are asked to observe posted signs and floor markings indicating traffic flow.
Sign up for public participation, either in-person or remotely, remains available by completing the form on this webpage or by calling (907) 459-1302.
THESE PROCEDURES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. PLEASE CHECK THIS PAGE OFTEN AND PRIOR TO ATTENDING A COMMISSION MEETING OR WORKSESSION.
