Public Participation
Persons wishing to speak during the Citizens to be Heard portion of the agenda or regarding Regular Agenda items and Public Hearing items must complete a comment card.

Each speaker may speak up to three minutes. Persons who have been authorized to represent a group of five or more individuals, who are present, should limit their presentation to 10 minutes. Items may be taken out of order by the Chair.

Public Hearing Procedures
Public hearings before the Board 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 Chair'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 Chair'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 Chair'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 the entire case in 20 minutes.

Appeals
Persons are advised that, if they decide to appeal any decision made at this meeting/hearing, they will need a record of the proceedings, and, for such purposes, they may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.
