BOISE, Idaho — The Boise Mayor's Office announced Monday the City of Boise will be holding several virtual meetings this month. Planning and Zoning, Historic Preservation, Design Review and Arts and History commissions will all begin meeting over Zoom to maintain social distancing.

City Council and the commissions will take public testimony live during the meetings. You can watch a livestream of each of the sessions live on YouTube. For more information on how to testify and a list of upcoming meetings, click here.

The virtual hearings will be moderated by an emcee who will allow attendees to testify for their allotted times. This is similar to how the hearings would be held in person.

Hybrid hearings, where some commissioners, staff and the public are physically present and others join virtually are being explored for the future.

According to an email from the Mayor's Office, the city is working on plans to reopen City Hall, facilities and businesses.
