The Mercer Island City Council will hold a public hearing at its regular meeting at 5 p.m. on Nov. 17 regarding an ordinance authorizing the council to approve a six-month extension of the moratorium concerning any major new construction in the Town Center.

During the Zoom meeting, people can comment during the public hearing by either calling in or logging onto the meeting as a Zoom attendee. The city clerk will also accept written comments until the public hearing is adjourned. Should restrictions on “in-person” attendance of council meetings be lifted, people can comment during the public hearing at City Hall.
