To allow the working group to have efficient discussions during meeting-
  • Public comment will only be accepted during pre-determined public comment agenda items (~15 minute at begining and end of meeting).
  • In the event an large number of individuals would like to comment, time will be divided to allow all parties an equal amount of time to speak.
  • Additional dialog and questioning between the working group and the commenting entity should be avoided to keep meetings on track. 


Offer comment during a formal comment period

Once the working group has a draft product, a public comment period will be opened.  Check back here or sign up for email updates to find out when the public comment periods will open. 

If you have a question or if your affiliated with a group requiring government consultation please contact the working group
