Estoppel of a zoning administrator to fix a previous written determination has been allowed in Virginia Code section 15.2-2311(C) since 1996, but the Supreme Court had never held that the subsection applied to estop anyone until recently when it decided the Board of Supervisors vs Rhoads. Come hear from the legal team that defended the zoning administrator, hear the issues and how the Supreme Court came down on them, what it means for zoning administrators going forward, and some lessons learned.
