City Planning for Large Attendance at February 11 Meeting

Council Chambers have Limited Capacity
Library Founders Suite will be used for overflow

City staff are planning for a large turnout at the City Council meeting on February 11, and are taking steps to accommodate as many citizens as possible. They caution that there will be a limited capacity, and that the meeting can be viewed remotely from home. The item of interest on the agenda is:

10.REGULAR AGENDA A. Adoption of Resolution No. 2020-1734
Supporting the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States and Declaring the City of Prescott a “Second Amendment Sanctuary City”

Council Chambers has a legal capacity limit of 150 people. The City has made arrangements to place overflow crowds in the Library Founder’s Suite, which has a capacity of 110. We ask that everyone be mindful of the fact that City hall will be conducting regular business during the meeting, and that attendees allow citizens to come and go freely as needed.

Here are some other important facts for the February 11 Council meeting:

  • The city has a long-standing prohibition on firearms in city buildings, therefore, citizens are encouraged to find an alternative to arriving at city facilities with a weapon, as storage options are limited.
  • There will be public comment allowed, for a period of two minutes maximum per person. Anyone who wishes to speak must complete a comment card, which will be available inside the Council Chambers. Total public comment time will be limited to 30 minutes, at the Mayor’s direction.
  • The City will not permit signs, banners or backpacks inside City Hall for safety reasons.
  • There will be a Study Session beginning at 2:30 p.m. The Voting Session will begin at 3 p.m. If people arrive before 3 p.m. we ask that they remain in the hallway until the Voting meeting begins. If they choose to enter the Study Session, we ask that they are as quiet as possible so as not to disrupt the meeting.
  • There are two large screens in the City Hall lobby. We ask that viewers be aware that City Hall is open for regular business, and that they do not obstruct ingress and egress points.
