FOR FULL BOARD CONSIDERATION
At this time, members of the public may address the Landmarks Board on items of interest to the public that
are within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Landmarks Board except agenda items. With respect to
agenda items, your opportunity to address the Landmarks Board will be afforded when the item has already
been reviewed in a public hearing at which members of the public were allowed to testify and the
Landmarks Board has closed the public hearing. Your opportunity to address the Landmarks Board must
be exercised during the Public Comment portion of the calendar. Each member of the public may address
the Landmarks Board for up to three minutes. If it is demonstrated that comments by the public will exceed
15 minutes, the President or chairperson may continue Public Comment to another time during the meeting.
The Brown Act forbids a commission or board from taking action or discussing any item not appearing on
the posted agenda, including those items raised at public comment. In response to public comment, the
Board is limited to: (1) briefly responding to statements made or questions posed by members of the
public, or (2) requesting staff to report back on a matter at a subsequent meeting, or (3) directing staff to
place the item on a future agenda. (Government Code Section 54954.2(a).)
