Land Use and Sustainable Development Conference at Pace Law School – December 11, 2015

Join us on December 11th at the NYS Judicial Institute at Pace Law School in White Plains for the Land Use Law Center’s annual Land Use & Sustainable Development Conference. This year’s theme: Reflecting on the Past, Planning for the Future: Celebrating 100 years of Zoning.

The conference will discuss transformative land use, zoning, and sustainable development laws and policies that are shaping communities in the Tri-State Region, as they respond to current challenges. Conference panelists will use zoning’s centennial as a broad framework to discuss various land use topics and their promise for the future. The Conference will bring together national, regional, and local land use experts to highlight how communities are transitioning towards sustainability, disaster recovery, and revitalization.

Governor Parris N. Glendening, President of Smart Growth America’s Leadership Institute, will be our keynote speaker. Our morning plenary will include Don Elliot, FAICP, Dwight H. Merriam, Esq., Professor John R. Nolon, Dean Patricia E. Salkin, and Professor Michael A. Wolf .

Conference participants can earn CLE, APA-CM, and New York State planning and zoning training credits.

This year’s conference is dedicated to the legacy of Alfred B. DelBello, who was instrumental in creating many significant and lasting land use initiatives during his tenure as Mayor of Yonkers, Westchester’s County Executive, New York’s Lieutenant Governor, and as an innovative legal practitioner: a career of over four decades of innovation and accomplishment.
