Parks Commission Rules & Procedures
Signing up to speak to the Commission and time limits
For the orderly recognition of members of the public who wish to speak before the Commission, speakers are asked to fill out a speaker request form and give it to the Commission Clerk. However, speakers may elect not to identify themselves by name. The form is available in the entryway area for the meeting room. Public comment is generally limited to two minutes per speaker, although the Commission Chair may modify this time limit in order to accommodate all speakers. Prearranged presentations are generally 10 minutes.
Communicating with Commissioners
If you wish for your written communication or materials to be distributed to all Commissioners, please email such communication or materials to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail them to the address listed on this page, for receipt at least two business days prior to the Commission meeting.

For PowerPoint presentations, you need to provide the Commission Clerk a USB flash drive 30 minutes prior to the meeting start or via email by 5:00 p.m. the day prior to the meeting. Electronic formats must be PC compatible.
Public records that relate to any item on the open session agenda for a regular Parks Commission meeting are available for public inspection. Those records that are distributed less than 72 hours prior to the meeting are available for public inspection at the same time they are distributed to all members, or a majority of the members of the Commission. The Commission has designated the office of the Parks Department, located at 455 County Center, 4th Floor, Redwood City, CA 94063, for the purpose of making those public records available for inspection. These documents are also available to be sent electronically. Contact the Commission Clerk.
