The U.S. Supreme Court, federal courts, and state courts all play an important role in shaping planning throughout the country. This annual review delves into the important cases, the decisions that were made — or not made — and how this will affect planning at many levels. The 2017 review will cover everything you need to know about how the decision in the “parcel as a whole” takings case, Murr v. Wisconsin, will affect the way your community plans. ​

Ideal for group training!
