The applicant will then be given an opportunity to close and the BCC will decide on the matter. Please refer to the back of your agenda copy for more details on guidelines for time limitations and opportunities to speak.

Any person who wishes to speak about a Public Hearing item shall complete a Blue Card, submit it to staff at the table located at the front of the Board Room, and may speak up to three (3) minutes. The Chairman will call each speaker, one by one, to the podium to be heard.

PUBLIC HEARING PROCEDURES

Public Hearings before the BCC are governed by the provisions of Section 134-14 of the Pinellas County Land Development Code. That code provides that at the conclusion of each person’s presentation, any speaker may seek the Chairman’s permission to ask questions of staff. Specifically:

1. At the conclusion of the presentations by the applicant and any proponents, all affected parties may seek the Chairman’s permission to ask questions of or seek clarification from the applicant and/or the proponents.

2. At the conclusion of the presentation by the opponents, all affected parties may seek the Chairman’s permission to ask questions of or seek clarification from any opponent.

The applicant’s closing comments will address testimony subsequent to their presentation. Continuing rebuttal of other than directly preceding testimony will not be allowed.

Because much testimony has already been submitted in writing, the applicant should present his or her entire case in twenty (20) minutes.
