Loudoun County is seeking input from the community concerning the process for providing public comment to the Board of Supervisors.
Members of the public are invited to fill out a brief online survey to answer questions about the current process for providing comments to the Board, including questions about the advance sign-up procedure and what their preferred language to provide comments would be. The survey results will be used by the Board as it considers changes to its Rules of Order (PDF) related to the procedures for accepting public comment in languages other than English during Board meetings.
Changes previously considered by the Board would allow speakers who wish to provide comments in a language other than English to use the allotted time to deliver comments in a language other than English and provide the Board with a transcript of the comments or allocate the full time to an interpreter to deliver comments in English on the commenters’ behalf.
The survey will be active through close of business Monday, September 12, 2022. To request the survey in a language other than English or Spanish, email Public Affairs and Communications.
Current Public Input Process
The Board of Supervisors encourages people to sign up to speak during public comment periods at its meetings. Members of the public are typically given at least two minutes to speak. Speakers have the option to deliver comments in person or remotely.
Details on the current procedures for public comment at Board meetings may be found online at loudoun.gov/signuptospeak.
