This Is Going to Be A Great Year!
Land Use and Sustainable Development Conference
For the past 20 years, the Land Use Law Center has sought to elevate the law, policy, and practice of land use and sustainable development in the Hudson Valley region and beyond. The Center’s 2014 conference brought together more than 350 attorneys, business professionals, planners, and local leaders to learn about national, regional, and local innovations, challenges, and best practices. Commissioner Mitchell Silver and Kaid Benfield provided fantastic keynotes to the day’s event.
Because zoning turns 100 years old in 2016, we plan to celebrate its impending centennial at our annual conference in December! Since zoning and land use regulation affect so many interests, our focus on zoning’s centennial provides us with a broad framework for the conference program. Conference planning this year will concentrate on zoning's past, present, and promise for the future. For example, conference panels may tackle current zoning challenges, such as zoning for solar, district energy, water conservation, resilience, transit orientation, etc. If you have any suggestions or thoughts regarding this topic, feel free to contact Tiffany Zezula at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to a great conference in December.
When: December 11, 2015
Where: The New York State Judicial Institute at Pace Law School
