There are two opportunities to make a comment during meetings– Public Comment and Open Forum. Zoom participation is strictly for viewing only. Comments will no longer be accepted via Zoom or telephone.
How to Make a Comment:
There are two opportunities for the public to address the Cultural Affairs Commission and City staff. The first opportunity is during the "Public Comment" period. The second opportunity is during the "Open Forum" period. Dialogue during the meeting with Commissioners, City staff, or its guest speakers is not permitted outside of the two comment periods.
RE: ZOOM PARTICIPATION + COMMENT PERIODS
All Commission meetings will be conducted in-person. The Cultural Affairs Commission is no longer accepting public comments via Zoom or telephone. Therefore, live comments must be made in-person. An alternative option is to submit a written comment by 5:00 PM BEFORE the meeting starts to NBalram@oaklandca.gov. Any comments received via email during the duration or after the meeting may not be entered into public record but will be shared with the Commission and City staff at a later time.

Contact us to request disability-related accommodations, American Sign Language (ASL), Mandarin, Spanish or another language interpreter at least five (5) business days before the event.
All meetings held in-person are wheelchair accessible. Please refrain from wearing scented products as a courtesy to attendees with chemical sensitivities.
