Agendas and Minutes
Submitting Comment on a Case
How can I submit comment on an active Board of Appeals case?
The public may submit comments on a case in two ways:
- Written: Interested parties may submit written comment in a timely manner before the hearing. You may send your comment by mail (Board of Appeals, 205 Main Street, Prince Frederick MD 20678) or by email to the Board of Appeals Clerk. Please note that anonymous comments will not be entered into the official record as a public exhibit for a case.
- Verbally: Testimony may be given verbally by attending the Public Hearing and all testimony will be sworn. Board of Appeals hearings are currently held via Zoom videoconference due to COVID-19. You may participate in a Zoom hearing by calling toll-free from any phone, and you’ll be given the opportunity to testify and/or to cross-examine the applicant at the hearing. The phone number and meeting I.D. necessary to participate in the Zoom hearing may be obtained by checking the Board of Appeals agendas page. Each monthly agenda is posted approximately 3 weeks prior to the actual hearing date.
How will my comments be used?
Written comments will become part of the public record. The comments will be distributed to the Board for their consideration and to the applicant so they may have the opportunity to address your comments. Mention of your correspondence will be included in the exhibits listed at the hearing, and possibly read aloud. Comments will also be included in the final Order for the case.
Live testimony also becomes part of the public record. All persons wishing to testify must identify themselves and be sworn in.
