Failure to raise an issue in writing prior to or before the close of the written comment period, Friday, April 1, 2016 (by 5:00 p.m.) or failure to provide sufficient specificity at the public hearing to afford the Planning Commission an opportunity to respond to the issue precludes appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals based upon that issue.
