LAW: Western Planner Legal Corner Cases from 2014

Thursday, October 02, 2014, 1:30pmFrom rails-to-trails to social media, take a look at the cases and controversies that were covered in Western Planner’s legal column this year. Join the discussion about how these cases impact the communities where we work and live. Learning Objectives: 1. Identify key legal decisions and doctrines that affect local government land use policy and decision-making; 2. Understand how those decisions and doctrines could impact the planning and regulatory process; and 3. Discuss potential policy or regulatory changes to accommodate legal requirements. Outline: In this session we will present an overview of the legal topics addressed in the Western Planner’s Legal Corner column for 2014, including: Koontz v. St. Johns River Water Management District (improper exactions), Marvin M. Brandt Revocable Trust v. United States (rails-to-trails), local government use of social media and the creation of Second Amendment rights, zombie subdivisions, the fight for legal supremacy between zoning and fracking, water conversation easements, and urban agriculture’s potential for legal protection under right-to-farm acts. We will highlight the main legal issue(s) of the topic, discuss what the issue(s) means in the context of local government planning and land use, and identify local policies and actions that might be subject to the legal doctrine along with potential considerations for updating those policies or actions. The session will be open to questions and discussion throughout the presentation. CM Criteria: This session will help planners understand both: (1) how recent legal decisions affect and may require change in local planning and regulatory processes, and (2) how local planning and regulatory processes are frequently governed and guided by legal requirements. The session will be led by two attorneys with extensive experience in land use practice who have studied, written about, taught, and applied the legal doctrines discussed in the presentation. The session will be presented in plain English and the topics will be discussed as they apply to planning so as to ensure that attendees with varying levels of legal knowledge and background can participate and learn from the session. The entire session will be open to questions and discussion.
