PUBLIC REMOTE PARTICIPATION PROCEDURE

For this meeting, members of the public who wish to participate in the meeting may do so in the following manner:

1. On the meeting date and time, turn to Foxboro Cable Government Station to simply watch the meeting.

2. To participate in the meeting, we recommend downloading the zoom app before the meeting. (This may not be necessary because you can click the link below but we have found that this makes logging in to the meeting easier.)

 3. Join the Zoom Meeting at 7:00pm.

· Using your computer or smart phone go the Zoom app and click “join a meeting” or click on:

Meeting ID: 844 8420 9051
Password: 219501

· The site can be a little tricky so if it doesn’t work the first time, try again. Try copying and pasting the link into a google chrome browser if internet explorer or another browser doesn’t work for you.

· Using “connecting to video and audio through the computer” has been the easiest method. So make sure your computer’s video/audio is on.

· If you cannot hear, you may need to phone in by calling 1-646-558-8656, same meeting ID and password as above. If it asks for a participant id you can just hit #.

Please put your phone on mute until the Chairman asks for your comments.

· Everyone will be placed on mute at the beginning of the meeting as you sign in but you should be able to hear. We will unmute you when we reach the public question and answer portion of our meeting.

4. If, for some reason, neither Zoom option is working for you, you can watch the cable station live feed and email the Conservation Commission at conservation@nortonmaus.com to ask your questions. We will read your email address, name and comments into the public record.

5. The standard procedure for a public hearing is a presentation by the applicant’s representative; questions and comments by the Conservation Commission and Director; then opening questions and comments to the abutters. Please be patient and wait for your turn to participate.

6. If there are no additional questions by the Conservation Commission or Director, the hearing would typically close; however, to ensure adequate opportunity for public participation, those specific hearings will be continued until the next meeting. This will be announced.

You will have until the next meeting to provide your comments and questions before the Commission closes the hearing and makes a decision.
