Prior to public input opportunities, all sites will be given time to tally how many people would like to provide input for each site. This tally will be shared with the CDE so that we may divide the available time evenly for each person speaking. Speakers will have an opportunity to speak in the order they appear on the site listed on the website. When a new person has been invited to speak, the site will type their full name for the CDE, and their request will be recorded accurately. If stakeholders complete their input before the end of a topic discussion, that discussion will end early and the next topic discussion will begin immediately.

Please ensure your comments are related to the specific topic. Once a topic discussion has been closed, we will be unable to accept oral input regarding the topic. If you did not have an opportunity to speak during the allotted time, please feel free to submit input via our e-mail address, fax, or through United States Postal Service using the information below.

Opportunities for input are available through October 31, 2017,
