Alternative and Controversial Land Use Regulations

(Problem) Sometimes, we ask that zoning do more than it was intended to do, as when we force on zoning the job of business regulation. Whether a convicted felon should ever run a massage parlor or not is simply not a subject for zoning. Sometimes, local governments don't live up to the expectations and the needs of their sovereigns - the federal and state governments. When that happens, the sovereigns step in and literally take over zoning with new requirements, as with flood plain regulation. Finally, some problems, like medical marijuana, have such a mix of land use, federal and state interest, business regulation and blight avoidance, that an approach transcending zoning is required.

(Solution) This OnDemand Webinar will equip local planners and elected and appointed officials with the necessary tools to understand and manage the federal and state overlays as they affect local zoning and to develop hybrid codes that go beyond traditional zoning to deal with the complex issues of regulation affecting local governments with emerging social problems. The faculty will detail the problems and programs so that participants can readily see what is appropriate for local land use regulation and what is not. This program will address how to cope with the federal and state overrides in ways that provide optimum local control to meet local objectives.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to review federal and state overrides.
  • You will be able to discuss local regulations outside of zoning.
  • You will be able to recognize what is appropriate for local land use regulation.
  • You will be able to describe hybrid codes that go beyond traditional zoning.
