Community Matters Request to Speak

  1. Community Matters Request to Speak

    City Council holds Community Matters for up to 16 speakers at the beginning of each meeting. Speakers may sign up in advance of the meeting for 8 of the 16 slots by filling out the form below by 9 a.m. on the day of the Council meeting. Each request that comes in over email, phone, or in person is given a number. All numbers are submitted to an online random number sequencer that generates random numbers in the range of total sign-ups. (Example: 30 people sign up, and 30 random numbers are generated between 1 and 30.) The first 8 randomly generated numbers are given speaking spots. The remaining speakers are placed on the wait-list in the randomly generated order. Both the list of eight speakers and the wait-list are published on the City's website by 12 noon on the day of Council meetings. The Clerk will notify speakers of their status. For the remaining spots, a sign-up sheet will be provided by the Clerk at 6 p.m. the day of the meeting. If you have questions, or require assistance, please contact the Clerk of Council at 434-970-3113 or by email at clerk@charlottesville.gov.
