Webcast— Lessons from the Sage Grouse: Impacts of the Endangered Species Act on Local Land Use Planning

The Planning and Law Division of the American Planning Association is pleased to host the upcoming webcast Lessons from the Sage Grouse: Impacts of the Endangered Species Act on Local Land Use Planning on Tuesday, March 31st from 3:30 to 5:00 PM EST. Registration is $20 for PLD members, $40 for nonmembers, and $45 for webinar registration plus a Planning and Law Division membership. This webcast explores what an ESA listing may mean for local governments, how local or regional efforts can be incentivized to cooperate with state or federal policy, how to break down the ‘sue-settle’ model for the betterment of the species, and whether the ESA requires an overhaul and if that is possible. Speakers include Fred Jarman of the Building & Planning Department for Colorado’s Garfield County; John Harja of Utah’s Public Lands Policy Coordinating Office; Dr. Rob Roy Ramey of Wildlife Science International; and Damien M. Schiff of Alston & Bird. Sorell E. Negro of Robinson & Cole will moderate the panel.
