Regional Board Workshop

The School of Government is hitting the road. In April and May, we will be in regional locations across the state to lead half-day workshops on legislative zoning decisions (rezoning, conditional zoning, zoning text amendments). These workshops will focus on the procedures and considerations for legislative land use decisions. The target audience is planning boards, governing boards, and the staff that serve them.
