Learning Objectives

  1. Attendees will gain insight directly from those who enact, implement, and oversee local zoning laws across municipalities.
  2. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in dialogue with panelists about the zoning law differences across the local municipalities within this relatively small geography with the goal of brainstorming solutions for simplification and streamlining of the sometimes overlapping and sometimes opposing regulations.
  3. Attendees will learn the daily decision-making of professionals in serving in regional planning/development positions through case studies shared by panelists.
  4. Discussion about the importance of future-proofing our region through sustainable development will explore and examine the ways in which zoning laws, building practices, real estate market, and related areas of concern are connected in this age of climate change.
