Session 1: Redevelopment Challenges - Texas cities face numerous planning, legal, political and development challenges in redevelopment. As Texas cities continue to expand and age, these challenges will increase. Causes include the need to revitalize deteriorating and neglected communities, gentrification, and the desire to attract business. Listen to a discussion about these challenges and how the City of Plano, which has been characterized as both a ring suburb and an urban area unto itself, has addressed them.

Session 2: Repurposing Golf Courses: Regulatory and Common Law Challenges - As more and more golf courses fail and are proposed for redevelopment into alternative uses, nearby landowners and municipalities seek to affect the redevelopment process. This can involve input into the regulatory approval process and/or exercising common law or restrictive covenant rights to maintain the golf course even after the course closes.

Session 3: Planning and Development Challenges in Small Towns - Facilitating development in accordance with local and state laws in small towns is uniquely challenging. Hear how applicants and the town’s planner work in less-structured environments with government officials who often do not possess a shared vision of accommodating growth.

Session 4: Authority of Texas Counties Over Land Use - Learn how, and to what extent, Texas counties control land use.
