General Information
Action Summary General public participation requirements for permit applications are found in Part I of 9VAC5 Chapter 80 (Permits for Stationary Sources). It allows for either the director or a majority of board members to request a meeting of the board regarding direct consideration of a permit by the board in order to review the decision and determine whether or not to grant board consideration, or to delegate the permit to the director. If such a meeting is held electronically, the board must have at least one forum open to the public, and individual board members may participate from any location regardless of whether it is open to the public. Chapter 627, 2009 Acts of the Assembly, has revised the provision requiring at least one forum to be open to the public and allowing individual board members to participate from any location in order to make it consistent with ยง 2.2-3708 of the Virginia Freedom of Information Act.
