System Test
Session 1: Design Discretion in Entitlements: The Hays St. Bridge Problem - Property adjacent to the Hays St. Bridge, in downtown San Antonio, would seem to have zoning and other entitlements allowing construction of a multi-family complex. However, San Antonio has implemented design guidelines for downtown projects, which injects a large amount of discretion into the development process, via the Historic and Design Review Commission. This discretion calls into question the nature of zoning entitlements.

Session 2: Nonconformities - Hear a comprehensive discussion of nonconforming uses and structures, and how nonconforming rights may be established, regulated and terminated. Plus a bonus tip: Stop using the term “legal nonconforming”!

Session 3: Takings: A Case Study in Current Issues - Explore topical issues in inverse condemnation, with an emphasis on pragmatic suggestions to resolving takings disputes.

Session 4: Annexations - Learn about dealing with annexations post SB 6 including public/private cooperation and annexation strategies for Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities.
