REMINDER: Illinois Law and Planning Firms Offering Free Seminar for Local Officials

On Friday, June 15th from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in Bloomington-Normal, IL, and on Friday, June 22nd from 8:30 to 12:00 p.m. in Naperville, IL, the Zoning and Land Use attorneys at Ancel Glink, Illinois' leading local government law firm, and planning consultants from Houseal Lavigne Associates, a premiere Illinois planning consulting firm, will present a free seminar for local officials and employees interested in land use planning and zoning issues in their communities.

Topics include:

Land Use Law Update CM |1.5 | Law
Ancel Glink's land use practice group will discuss best practices for zoning hearings, and how new legislation expressly authorizes communities to adopt rules of procedure to assist in the management of ordinary and complex zoning applications. Participants will also learn about the latest cases affecting planning and zoning officials, analyzing emerging issues under the Second Amendment, takings claims by billboard owners, limits to local regulation of telecommunications facilities, and more.

New Tools for Zoning & Visualization CM |1.5
Houseal Lavigne Associates planning consultants will demonstrate how enhanced visual communication and improving the appearance of zoning ordinances, design guidelines, and other regulatory tools are becoming increasingly important in the digital age. As our tools, software and the web evolve, so have our practices, codes, and ordinances. The increased transparency in government has also broadened the audience of potential users and readers, and expectations of easy access and user friendliness are at an all time high. This presentation will highlight the use of visual tools and imagery to enhance zoning ordinances, explain zoning changes, and highlight the development potential of key sites.

This program has been approved for 1.5 hours of AICP Certification Maintenance in law and 1.5 hours of AICP Certification Maintenance in planning practice.
