If that title doesn't grab you, nothing will. Here's the description of an upcoming program from the American Planning Association that looks awfully interesting:
The Planning and Law Division of the American Planning Association is pleased to host the upcoming webcast Sex, Guns & Drugs: Planning for Controversial Land Useson Wednesday, October 22nd from 1:00 to 2:30 PM CST. Registration is $20 for PLD members, $40 for nonmembers, and $45 for webinar registration plus a Planning and Law Division membership. Presented by Daniel J. Bolin and Gregory W. Jones of Ancel Glink, this webcast will explore if and where controversial businesses belong in communities.The U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and the right to bear arms. But it’s not that simple. Businesses that rely on these constitutional guarantees continue to generate controversy in communities across the country. To compound matters, state legislatures from Arizona to Massachusetts have been busy granting new — and in many cases, previously unheard of — rights to marijuana and firearm retailers.This has rapidly drawn planners and zoning practitioners into the debate over how these businesses best fit into their communities, and whether their communities are legally obligated to accommodate these uses in the first place. Spend an hour learning about the issues and regulatory strategies from around the country.More information here, including registration.
