We believe that citizen involvement is a key component to making Maitland a great place to live, work and raise a family.   Maitland’s City Council and Staff provide many opportunities for citizens to get involved in our local government, including the opportunity to participate in public hearings.  See our current public hearing notices

Notices of all City of Maitland public hearings are posted on the City’s bulletin board (1776 Independence Lane), in a newspaper of general circulation and are mailed to property owners within 500 feet of the subject property, if required by Florida Statutes. 



Public hearings are often required by federal, state or local law. These hearings allow the decision-makers, including the City Council and some of the City’s appointed boards, to receive and consider public views before deciding or making recommendations on important issues that impact Maitland citizens.  This process is an opportunity for members of the public to share their thoughts before decisions are made.

Below are a few examples of City of Maitland public hearings:

  • Amendments to Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) to change the Future Land Use designation or text of the Plan.
  • Requests for Rezoning to change the use of the property or density permitted
  • Annexation requests to be part of the Maitland corporate limits
  • Amendments to the Land Development Code (LDC) to change the regulations adopted by City Council related to how land may be developed such as zoning requirements, subdivision of land, building appearance, landscaping, signs, parking, and other aspects of development 

The Community Development Department serves as the Chair of the Development Review Committee (DRC) and the Staff liaison to the following:

When you arrive in the Maitland City Hall Council Chambers (1776 Independence Lane) please feel free to sit anywhere that is not designated for Staff seating.  If you would like to speak, you may be asked to complete a public speaker card before speaking.  The main purpose of providing this information is to make sure we spell your name correctly in the minutes (the written record of the meeting) and give us a way to follow up with you if necessary.

After the presiding officer (Mayor or Chair) calls the case on the agenda, Staff may introduce the case with a short presentation at the podium on the left (Council’s right) side of the Chambers (not typical for Board of Zoning Adjustment hearings).  Following Staff's introduction, the applicant is given the opportunity to present their case before opening the public hearing.  The applicant and public speak from the podium on the right (Council’s left) side of the Chambers.  In order to keep public hearing meetings running efficiently, we ask that you please follow these public hearing guidelines:

  • If you have handouts to share, please bring 8 copies, and give the copies to the Staff as you approach the podium. Do not approach Council/appointed boards with the handouts; City staff will distribute the copies for you
  • Adjust the microphone on the podium as necessary to ensure it’s at the appropriately height for you
  • Speak into the microphone by first stating your name and address for the record
  • Be concise with your remarks; it may help to write your comments before the meeting to ensure you capture your important points.
  • Avoid repetition; if other speakers before you have already made a certain point, then please don’t repeat those comments.
  • You may wish to consider designating a spokesperson for your group; this is the most effective way to relay the points of groups to avoid repetition. The spokesperson may recognize the group by asking them to stand.
  • Limit comments to three minutes or less. There’s a timer on the podium. You’ll see a green light the first 2 minutes and 30 seconds, a yellow light the last 30 seconds, and a red light when your time has expired. The presiding officer will politely interrupt you to remind you that your time has expired and will call the next speaker to the podium.
  • Please direct comments to the full City Council/appointed board and not to an individual City Council/appointed board member.
  • This is your opportunity to make your comments. The group conducting the hearing will listen and take your comments into consideration; they generally do not engage in two-way dialog during the hearing.

Thanks for helping us ensure a successful business meeting and a productive public hearing. In doing so, please refrain from applauding and speaking from the audience.
