Statewide stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines have forced local governments to move to virtual and remote meetings, including quasi-judicial land use and zoning hearings. This new way of operating raises many challenges as well as opportunities. This program brings together (virtually) land use practitioners and local government attorneys from across Florida to discuss the best practices and potential pitfalls of virtual local government meetings and quasi-judicial land use hearings.

Part II builds on the previous program, taking a deeper dive into best practices and lessons learned about virtual hearings. In Part II, the same group of land use practitioners and local government attorneys reconvene to discuss the latest in virtual hearing practice in Florida.
