Instructions for Virtual/Communications Media Technology (CMT) meeting for Quasi-Judicial and Legislative (Plan Amendment) Hearings

Because of health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the members of the Tampa City Council cancelled their July 16, 2020 meeting and, effective July 21, 2020, cancelled all in-person City Council meetings through October 1, 2020.
