*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our report preparation process is taking longer than usual. As a result, we cannot guarantee your project will be presented to the Board on the specified date even if your application is submitted by the deadline. Future meetings may be held electronically to comply with social distancing guidelines as needed but could revert to in-person meetings when conditions improve.
