§ 3. Hearings  


Latest version.
  • A. Hearings. The ZHE shall conduct regularly scheduled hearings on each Wednesday of the month at 9:00 a.m. in the Main Conference Room of the Permit Center. If no official matters are scheduled for a particular hearing date, then no hearing will be held. All ZHE hearings shall be open to the public.

    B. Special Hearings. The ZHE, in its discretion, may conduct special hearings at times and places other than regularly scheduled hearings and upon regular notice to the applicant and all persons entitled to receive it.

    C. Postponements and Continuances. An applicant may make a request for postponement of a scheduled hearing in writing to the ZHE at least 48 hours in advance of the hearing; provided, however, if the hearing falls on a Monday, the request must received by the ZHE prior to 12:00 p.m. Cincinnati time on the preceding Friday. The ZHE shall have discretion to determine whether to grant the postponement request. The ZHE shall give notification of a postponed hearing by posting a notice on the Official Calendar.

    Following the expiration of the deadline to make a written request for postponement, an applicant may request the continuance of a scheduled hearing by appearing at the scheduled hearing and making an oral request to the ZHE. Upon hearing an oral request for continuance, the ZHE may continue the hearing if it determines the applicant has demonstrated good cause that the hearing should be continued.
