Written Comments 

“Red Dots” are written communications received from members of the public and staff on City Council, Planning Commission, or Design Review Board (DRB) items after the agenda for an upcoming meeting has been published, and are submitted prior to the meeting taking place. 

In order to ensure timely delivery of red dot communications from the public, they must be submitted no later than 12 p.m. on the day of the meeting. If the Red Dot is submitted after this cut off time, there is no guarantee that it will be reviewed by the City Council prior to the meeting. However, the communication will be distributed and included in the record for that agenda item. These same rules apply to Red Dots for Planning Commission, and Design Review Board.

Please submit City Council related Red Dot communications by email to the City Clerk

Planning Commission or DRB Red Dots should be submitted by email to the Planning Department

If you have questions about Red Dot communications, please contact the City Clerk’s office at 858-375-9558 or cityclerk@delmar.ca.us.
