Zoning and Development Hearings

In compliance with State and Baltimore County COVID-19 safety guidelines and the principles of Due Process, Zoning and Development hearings will be held virtually until further notice. Hearings will be live-streamed using Webex. Webex is accessible online using a standard web browser (Chrome, Edge, etc.) or a free downloadable application on your desktop or mobile device.

Testify During a Hearing

Petitioners in zoning cases, and Developers in development cases, will be notified of the hearing date and time, and the case ID number. Petitioners, developers, their attorneys and any interested persons who wish to testify or present evidence at the hearing will be required to preregister at least two business days in advance in order to participate in the hearing. Persons who do not preregister to participate in the hearing will not be permitted to participate unless the Administrative Law Judge finds that there is good cause to excuse their failure to register.

To register, complete the online request form or call the Office of Administrative Hearings at 410-887-3868 for assistance.

The identities of registered participants will not be accessible to the opposing parties or to the public until they appear at the hearing.
