The Board will use Zoom, which allows applicants and members of the public to participate using either the Zoom app or by telephone, using a dial-in number and meeting code. Video tutorials for the Zoom app are available online.

Participants should expect to watch the live stream and dial in when the Board calls a specific calendar number. They will automatically be placed in a waiting room until it is their turn to speak, but participants should only call in when the Board is discussing the calendar item for which the participant wishes to testify.

Because of time and technological constraints, testimony given by applicants and members of the public will be limited in duration; however, the Board encourages the submission of written materials electronically to

Applicants’ late submissions (or attempts to submit materials during the hearing) will not be considered by the Board until the following hearing, unless the Board directs otherwise.

For assistance participating, please direct questions to Emanuel Jones at or (212) 386-0009.
