After more than a year of hosting meetings virtually as COVID-19 spread, the Montgomery County Planning Board expects to allow people to attend meetings in person beginning Sept. 9.
The Planning Board does not meet in August, but will allow the public to attend meetings when they resume, according to a press release.
The Planning Board, like other local government bodies, began holding meetings virtually last spring as the pandemic spread rapidly.
The board still allowed people to testify about projects live by joining the virtual meeting in real-time. Meetings were also streamed online, as usual. Streaming will continue when in-person meetings resume.
Since the last time the public was allowed at meetings, the Planning Board headquarters has moved from Silver Spring. The board is now at 2425 Reedie Drive in Wheaton.
