Public comment will be open again concerning the Banning Ranch development's environmental impact report (EIR).
Those who wish to speak about the Newport Beach project can do so during the Planning Commission's May 17 meeting.
City attorneys reviewed concerns that there wasn't ample time or notice to comment on the EIR, determining that the city was in compliance of open-meeting laws, said Newport Beach city spokeswoman Tara Finnigan.
The city chose to allow EIR-related comments again because of ample interest from the public.
"We … take public comment and public perception about this and other matters that the city handles very seriously," Finnigan said.
