Around the Capitol: Laws Shaping the Future of Planning

2

I liked the updates on recent court cases, but I'd prefer that the work on legislative priorities is performed outside of this session. I'd prefer if this session was led by a few land use attorneys on a particular topic, such as legal considerations when approving CUPs, and then using a few court cases to demonstrate those issues. That would be much more relevant to my skill development in this area of my practice.
