Welcome to the Detroit Land Bank’s Board of Directors electronic meeting using Zoom technology. This meeting is designed to keep everyone safe while still meeting the requirements of Michigan’s Open Meetings Act as modified by the Governor’s Executive Order number 2020-129. DLBA Board Members and staff participating in the meeting will use Zoom’s video or audio capabilities so that they are able to hear one another throughout the meeting. Members of the public may listen to the meeting by dialing-in by phone or listen and view the meeting by joining online.


Live Public Comment: 

Live public comment is available via online Zoom attendance and by telephone. Procedures for participating in public comment will be announced during the meeting. When commenting, please mute background noise sources and move to a quiet area, so that you can be clearly heard. All rules that apply to in-person Board meetings will also apply to the electronic meetings.


Each person who would like to address the Board will be given the opportunity when the moderator turns on his or her microphone for the allotted time. Please note that our rules regarding public participation at meetings will be enforced.


If you are joining the meeting using a computer, smartphone, or the Zoom app, and you would like to participate in public comment, please indicate by "raising your virtual hand". To do so, click the icon labeled “Participants” at the bottom center of your screen. Then at the bottom of the window on the right side of the screen, click the button labeled “Raise Hand." Your virtual hand will then be raised.

  4. Members of the public will refrain from profane language, obscene conduct, disruptive comments or gestures, applause, personal attacks, or behavior that is likely to provoke disorderly conduct.
  5. Any breach of the peace, including a failure to abide by these rules, may result in disorderly persons being asked to leave the meeting.
