Public Hearings


Please see the bottom of the page for how to provide public comments.

There are no public hearings at this time. Please check back!


The County encourages residents to continue to provide public comment regarding public hearings. To promote social distancing, Public Zoning Hearings will be conducted electronically and in-person public comment is temporarily unavailable. There are two ways for residents to provide comments to the DeKalb County Hearing Officer relevant to the applicable hearing on the daily agenda.

  1.  Web Form
    Public comments may be submitted via the form at the bottom of this webpage in advance of and during the Public Hearing prior to the public comment section. Comments received prior to 5:00 p.m. on the day preceding the hearing will be read aloud during the hearing and published online as soon as practicable. Comments received on the day of the public hearing and prior to the public comment section of the hearing will be read aloud during the meeting. Comments will be read aloud in the order in which they were received, and accepted until the public comment section of the hearing. Any comments received after the conclusion of the public hearing will be returned or deleted and not be included into the public record. The web form is available when the Public Hearings are pending, noticed properly and is published and will be closed once the Hearing is adjourned.
  2. Hard Copy
    Individuals will also have the option of submitting public comment in hard copy. Individuals who wish to do so must place their comments in the drop box located inside the vestibule of the DeKalb County Administration Building at 110 E. Sycamore Street in Sycamore. Hard copy public comments shall state the individual’s name, city/township of residence, and to which hearing the comment relates. Hard copy comments must be placed in the drop box by 5:00 p.m. on day prior to the public hearing to be received by staff and included in the record as correspondence for the Public Zoning Hearing.

For more details about how public comments will be handled, please review the Temporary Rules document (see link above).



The public comment web form is available from the time the meeting agenda is published (typically on Friday) until the meeting is adjourned.
