Venue & Sponsors



Local government land use decisions affect economic development and quality of life. They can also create major challenges to efforts by property owners to develop and use their property, as well as to residents as they cope with growth and change. This program is designed for attorneys, professional planners, and government officials involved in land use planning, zoning, permitting, property development, conservation and environmental protection, and related litigation. It not only addresses and analyzes the state-of-the-art efforts by government to manage land use and development, but also presents the key issues faced by property owners and developers in obtaining necessary governmental approvals. In addition, the entire approach of the program is to provide practice pointers that give immediate “take home value.”
