The City of Orlando is holding virtual public meetings. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic social distancing efforts, the City of Orlando City Hall is closed to the public.

There is no physical location to attend these meetings in person. Members of the public are encouraged to continue participating by watching the virtual meeting online or listening by phone and providing live public comment or submitting written public comment in advance.

Public Comment

The public is welcome at all virtual meetings and invited to make a live public comment or submit written public comment in advance. The opportunity to provide public comment is available until the designated public comment portion of the item is closed.

Non-repetitive comments are encouraged; however, large groups are requested to name a spokesperson.  A general time limit of 5 minutes to speak applies per issue or as officially set during the meeting.

The City of Orlando encourages courteous, civil discourse in online settings. Persons making public comment are asked to conduct themselves with the same rules of decorum as they would in a traditional public meeting.

Instructions to set up for virtual meetings are available here for download:
