APA Planning Law Division Hosting an Upcoming Webcast on Sex, Guns & Drugs: Planning for Controversial Land Use

From APA Planning Law Division: The U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and the right to bear arms. But it’s not that simple. Businesses that rely on these constitutional guarantees continue to generate controversy in communities across the country.
