If I were you, I would thoroughly understand the procedural rules for the
Commission meeting before I went there. I went through an exercise
similar in spirit (but less financially burdensome) than yours three years
ago that ended very badly.
The problem was that I was not allowed to rebut the arguments of my
neighbors, who testified after me. They were allowed to say all kinds of
absolutely idiotic things about my proposed tower, and I was not allowed
to speak because I had already had my "turn." If I had it to do all over
again I would have had a lawyer (or other advocate) give my initial
presentation, and save my own comments to rebut the nonsense that the
neighbors will come up with.
By the way, I would love to been required to notify only those within 300'
of my tower. (I wouldn't have had to notify anyone!). The rule here was
that I had to notify people 2 parcels deep in every direction. Out here in
farm country, that meant notifying people over a mile away.
