Program Features
The 22nd Annual Land Use Conference offers high-level, detailed coverage of the key issues, strategies, challenges, tools, and opportunities facing municipalities, counties, and developers.

  • Analyze the impacts of Reed v. Town of Gilbert on regulations including signs, charitable bins, and solicitation.
  • Explore the use and development of emergency management plans before, during, and after a disaster.
  • Examine the implications that the current social political climate has on land use and development.
  • Review how zoning and economic development efforts can encourage the emergence of creative and other special districts.
  • Hear how a backyard home brewing operation turned distribution brewery is supporting the revitalization efforts of downtown Taylor, Texas.
  • Look at land use issues including projects outside corporate limits, county authority and ETJ, infill development, and much more.
Earn up to 14.50 hours of CLE credit, including 2.00 hours of ethics credit, and the opportunity to network with your fellow land use professionals.
