Timelines and Procedures
In order not to restrict any person from testifying
but, rather, to encourage everyone to do so, the Canby Planning
Commission shall try to adhere as closely as possible to the following
or representative(s) - not more than 15 minutes
Proponent; not more than 5 minutes
Opponents; not more than 5 minutes
Rebuttal; not more than 10 minutes
Everyone present is encouraged to testify, even if it is only
to concur with previous testimony. All questions must be directed
through the Chair. Any evidence to be considered must be submitted
to the hearing body for public access. All written testimony
both for and against shall be summarized by staff and presented
briefly to the hearing body during the Staff Report.
The applicable substantive criteria are those listed on the agenda
sheet available at the rear of the room and on page 2 of the staff
report. Testimony and evidence must be directed toward the applicable
substantive criteria listed on page 2 of the staff report or other
criteria in the Comprehensive Plan or land use regulations which
the person believes to apply to the decision.
Failure to raise an issue accompanied by statements or evidence
sufficient to afford the decision maker and the parties an opportunity
to respond to the issue, precludes appeal to the Land Use Board
of Appeals based on that issue.
Prior to the conclusion of the initial evidentiary hearing, any
participant may request opportunity to present additional evidence
or testimony regarding the application. The Planning Commission
shall grant such request by continuing the public hearing or leaving
the record open for additional written evidence or testimony.
Any such continuance of extension shall be subject to the limitations
of the so called 120 day rule, unless the continuance or extension
is requested or agreed to by the applicant.
If additional documents or evidence are provided by any party,
the Planning Commission may, if requested, allow a continuance
or leave the record open to allow the parties a reasonable opportunity
to respond. Any such continuance or extension of the record requested
by an applicant shall result in a corresponding extension of the
so-called 120 day time period.
