Due to Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order the County Offices are closed to in person visits from the public at this time. In an effort to continue to provide public access to the Planning Commission meetings, Benton County will be providing telephonic and video access for the public to view and provide testimony at the Planning Commission meetings. If you choose to join the meeting telephonically, we ask that you please limit background noise or mute your line to prevent any unnecessary interruption to the meeting.

If you wish to provide comments on any of the actions before the Planning Commission, we ask that you please fill out our online form and submit your request to our office. You must submit a request form to participate for each hearing that you wish to attend.  If you prefer to make the request by phone, please call our office at 786-5612 and we can add you to the list for providing testimony.  At the meeting the names of those wishing to testify will be called out and at that time you will be able to present your comments/concerns regarding the specific agenda item.

In order to join the meetings telephonically you will need to dial in and enter the Meeting ID and Passcode.  These links will be available on June 9th, shortly before 6 p.m.  To view the Video please use the link below.
