The Planning Commission will meet on Thursday, May 20, 2021, at 6 p.m. A Citizens’ Time of up to 20 minutes will be offered for items not on the Agenda before the public hearings begin.
Hanover County is striving to conduct the public’s business, take the necessary precautions to protect residents participating in public meetings, and comply with Governor Northam’s guidelines prohibiting large gatherings and maintaining social distancing.
Given the current health crisis, the County strongly encourages those who wish to make their opinions known during Citizens’ Time or during the Public Hearings to provide their comments online or register to speak in-person.
