About This Course

Public hearings are essential forums for community involvement, especially in the context of zoning and land use decisions. But what exactly distinguishes a public hearing from a public meeting? This CLE program delves into the critical role of public hearings, offering a comprehensive understanding of their necessity and function.

Led by a seasoned land use attorney—who brings the unique perspective of a former planning commissioner and current elected official—this seminar provides in-depth guidance on navigating public hearings. You will learn the essential dos and don'ts, from what to say and what to avoid, to ensuring full compliance with procedural and technical requirements.

Participants will gain valuable insights into effective strategies from multiple viewpoints, whether you are a developer or petitioner seeking approval or a commissioner assessing proposals. This course not only covers the legal and practical aspects of public hearings but also includes engaging anecdotes from real-life cases, making it an invaluable resource for your professional practice.

Join us to enhance your skills and knowledge in managing public hearings successfully, and leave with actionable tips and strategies that will benefit your practice in zoning and land use law.
