Conducting an Evidentiary Hearing

Conducting an Evidentiary Hearing

This module reviews how local government boards conduct evidentiary hearings as a part of their land development regulations – a necessary step in making quasi-judicial decisions. The concepts outlined include: when an evidentiary hearing is required and why, the purposes of an evidentiary hearing, the roles of various persons at these hearings, actions taken prior to the hearing, conducting the hearing itself, and compiling the record of the hearing.

You can also purchase yearly access to the full library of online training modules on planning and zoning at a discounted rate.
