Clevelanders for Public Comment

Clevelanders for Public Comment

Public comment will finally begin in Cleveland!

This is a major step forward. An open and transparent government is critical to a robust and durable democracy. We strongly believe that a public comment period will lead to a more engaged public and improved public policy outcomes in Cleveland. 

Documenters have published a 2022 guide to public comment, covering everything from rules, to arriving at city hall, to covid-safety measures.

There are some areas that will still require further advocacy in order to get the public comment policy we want for Cleveland. Read more here.
