What is the general public comment session at City Council?

Before convening the regular meeting, Denver City Council conducts a one-half hour general public comment session during which persons may address the Council on any matter of city concern, except for any matter that is scheduled for either a formal or a courtesy public hearing at that meeting or any future meeting of Council. 

Speakers who have not addressed Council at the general public comment session in the previous week shall be given priority in registration on a first-come, first-served basis. Speakers shall be recognized to speak in the order of registration.

How long will I get to speak? 

Each speaker gets a maximum of 3 minutes to speak on any topic of his/her choice. The Council member presiding over the public comment session gavels the speaker when the 3 minutes has expired.


How do I sign up to speak at the public comment session?

Starting at 12 p.m. on the Friday before the next scheduled general public comment session, sign up


Topics are required, so include them in all emails and voicemails, or your submission will be considered void.  

Sign-up closes at 4 p.m. the day of the general public comment session.
