On Wednesday, July 17, 2013, from 4:00 - 5:30 pm ET, I will be a panelist in the American Planning Association's above-titled teleconference. The session was put together by our ABA and OCA colleague Dwight Merriam, and in additon to Dwight and me, includes Professors David Callies (U. Hawaii) and Carol Brown (U. Richmond), John Baker, an attorney with Greene Espell in Minneapolis, and our ABA colleage and fellow U. Hawaii alum Julie Tappendorf.
Here's the description of the program:
The U.S. Supreme Court ended its term with a decision that will change planning and regulation — but by how much, and will the change be for better or worse? Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District is the most important planning law case in nearly a decade, and already there is widespread disagreement about what it means.
A diverse panel of land use lawyers will examine this ruling and its impact on exactions, property rights, and governmental actions in the context of the landmark cases before it. You — planner, property owner, developer, advocate or neighbor — will take away practical advice on how to comply with the Court's mandate and make it work to your benefit.
