The Promised Lands and a host of partners are putting together an educational and social event "Everything You Wanted to Know About Florida Planning and Zoning (But Were Afraid to Ask)" – Land Use Symposium II – in Charlotte County, FL. This unique event should be beneficial to those old and new to the world of planning, zoning, land-use and quasi-judicial proceedings - including elected officials and local planning board members. Hear from officials and land use professionals and from special guest Gene Boles, FAICP - an advisor to Hillsborough County on its comprehensive plan and Senior Fellow for the Program for Resource Efficient Communities at the University of Florida. All are welcome. This three-hour program will discuss various planning and legal approaches to zoning cases, public testimony, land use, technology, and other issues of interest to the audience. The content will be related to planning law, land use law, environmental law, due process and quasi-judicial hearings. There will be a formal presentations, discussion, and opportunities for questions, answers.
