The Planning and Law Division of the American Planning Association is pleased to host the upcoming webcast Drone Technology: Implications on Policymaking and Design of the Built Environment on Monday, March 13, 2017 from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. EDT.

The educational objective of this course is to discuss the implications of emerging drone technology on city and town planning. Featuring specialists in the fields of law, urban design, and policymaking, this webinar will examine federal and local legislation pertaining to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Drone operations raise several concerns for the public given their wide range of recreational and commercial current uses. We will discuss regulations pertaining to these issues and explore how future zoning regulations can best guide the use of drones in our built environment.
