Public hearings before elected and appointed boards and commissions are a routine part of the entitlements process for developers, whether they involve rezoning, platting, variances, or site plans. Developers’ presentations at these hearings can make or break the approval process, depending on the level of organization, detail, preparation, clarity, and professionalism given to these presentations.

This short, cocktail-hour program will offer tips on best practices for public hearings, including:

  • Effective approaches for communicating information about a project
  • Appropriate roles for various team members
  • How to avoid or limit public outcry (to the extent possible)
  • Preparation and presentation techniques
