Current Issues In Land Use Mediation

Learn strategies for different pathways available to resolve land use disputes and how to get the best results from mediation.

When it comes to zoning, the risk of litigation is always present. Litigation can be long, uncertain, and expensive. One way to minimize the delays, risks, and uncertainty of litigation is to pursue mediation. Unlike mediation in other civil cases, however, land use disputes often turn more on principles than principal, and such disputes can rarely be resolved simply by throwing money at it. As a result, more complex strategies often are required to achieve success in land use mediation. This topic will help you understand key factors for engaging in the land use approval process, whether as a petitioner, objector, or governmental evaluator. Additionally, it will offer strategies for the different pathways available to resolve land use disputes: the customary public process, through litigation, or through mediation. Most importantly, this information will offer benchmarks for deciding the best pathway to follow and insights on how to get the best results from mediating a land use dispute.
