Webinar: Virtual Hearings - Statewide Best Practices for Local Government Land Use Hearings

Presented by The Florida Bar Environmental and Land Use Law Section, Real Property, Probate & Trust Law Section, and City, County and Local Government Law Section

Wednesday, May 6 | 12:00-1:30pm (EDT)


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. 

Patrick Krechowski, partner in the firm's Jacksonville office and a member of the Real Estate practice, will serve as a panelist. Patrick has over 20 years of experience in real estate, land use, environmental, governmental, administrative litigation, appeals and title insurance law. Patrick is Board Certified by The Florida Bar in City, County and Local Government Law. His practice focuses on all aspects of zoning and land use law, real estate due diligence, environmental permitting (including sovereign submerged lands and riparian rights), environmental remediation, water use permitting and planning, beach nourishment projects, coastal construction and due diligence before local governments and federal/state agencies, including associated administrative and civil litigation.

This webinar will be available and free to all ELULS, RPPTL, and CCLG members and is available for CLE and CM credits.
