Planning Commissioner Ethics

April 20, 2015
7:15–8:45 p.m. ET

The decisions that come out of planning commissions need to be fair, inclusive, legal, and in sync with sound planning. Meeting those standards is the responsibility of every planning commissioner and official. What are the rules and roles? How should meetings and decisions be handled? Hear from veteran planning commissioners, an attorney, and planning directors and staff who work with commissioners. They'll share best practices, lessons learned, ways to avoid legal pitfalls, and insights into creating trust and mutual respect.

Cosponsored by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.
