Informal Workshop:Rufus Hurst, Law Director -S "tanding"
Anyone may speak at a public hearing where people are expressing opinions on rezoning. They are not giving testimony. Regarding a lot split, that is an administrative action and only people with standing may speak. This is testimony. If an individual has standing for an administrative hearing, the only time he should speak is during the hearing process. The chair determines when an administrative process is no longer productive. The applicant needs fair opportunity to present without interruption, as well as those with standing opposed to it. Then the applicant may refute after which time the chair closes the hearing. People may not speak directly to the applicant. GPC may ask any questions at any portion in the process. Mr.Hurst said they are working on devising more helpful language. If a person without standing cannot speak, he can appeal to V.C. In administrative hearings,we will recommend a court reporter be present for the record. The language defining Standing will include:the applicant, the owner of the property if not the applicant, a contiguous neighbor, a person claiming an injury or prejudice or deprived right in case the application is approved or denied. You need to show a direct relationship between the person and the outcome, rather than an abstract interest everyone has sintaint.diInfga, pGePrsCon without standing speaks and the decision is influenced by this person without may be in trouble.
The regular meeting was called to order at 7:30 p.m. by Chairman Myers.

guidance. If necessary, the applicant can appeal to V.C. Mr. Salvage concluded that if we are to
