Council Agendas and Minutes (2021 - 2022)

The City of Palo Alto began hybrid in-person and virtual City Council meetings on Monday, February 14th. Visit our Resources for Hybrid Meetings Webpage to learn more.

Pursuant to the provisions of the California Governor’s AB-361, issued on September 16, 2021, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 meetings will be held as "hybrid" meetings with the option to attend by teleconference or in person. To maximize public safety while still maintaining transparency and public access, members of the public can choose to participate from home or attend in person. Meetings are broadcast on Cable TV Channel 26 or 29, live on YouTube, and live on the Midpen Media Center. Members of the public who wish to participate virtually can find instructions on the top and bottom of individual agendas. To ensure participation in a particular item we suggest calling in or connecting 15 minutes before your item is scheduled to begin. 

The City Council Agenda Packet is produced and published 11 days before the meeting.  The City Council Agenda is shown on the City's web pages after 5:30 p.m. on Thursdays.

Participating in a Virtual Public Meeting

Members of the Public may provide public comments to teleconference meetings via email, teleconference, or by phone. For more information on how to participate virtually in public meetings, visit our Resources for Hybrid Meetings Webpage.
