All City Council/City Plan Commission meetings will be held in the Richardson Room located in the City Hall/Civic Center facility located at 411 W. Arapaho Rd.

Meetings will take place following strict “social distancing” guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) which outline physical distancing of at least 6 feet between people and other measures (see here).

Citizens are encouraged to watch meetings online or on cable rather than participating in person due to concerns related to the spread of COVID-19.

The City of Richardson requests and encourages feedback from the public on all public meetings/hearings. Comments from the public help decision makers learn about the diverse points of view in the community and improve the quality of policymaking.

There are three ways to submit public comment:

  1. Attend a meeting in person,
  2. Provide comment using the online Public Comment Form (see below),
  3. Participate in the meeting electronically by phone (Public Hearings only).

Please do not include any sensitive or confidential information when providing public comments.

The Public Comment Form is available for comments on any topic or agenda item, including public hearing items. All comments submitted using the online form must be submitted by 5 p.m. on the meeting date and will be provided for the record.
