Regional Board Workshops for Planning and Development Regulation

School of Government zoning board workshops are back—virtually! In August and September we are offering remote board workshops on the procedures and considerations of land use decisions. One offering is focused on legislative zoning decisions (rezonings and zoning text amendments) with a target audience of planning boards and governing boards. The other offering is focused on quasi-judicial decisions (variances, special use permits, certificates of appropriateness) and geared toward boards of adjustment, preservation commissions, and planning or governing boards that make quasi-judicial decisions.    

Quasi-Judicial Board Workshop 

For a variance, do we have to hold an evidentiary hearing? What is ex parte communication? What evidence do we consider when we are making the decision? This remote board training workshop will dig into the procedures and considerations for quasi-judicial zoning decisions. Participants can choose one of the following dates: 

August 24, 2021 1:00-3:30pm or 

September 13, 2021 5:30-8:00pm
 

Legislative Board Workshop

For rezonings, what is the role of the planning board? What is a consistency statement? What factors can the governing board consider? Can they add conditions to the rezoning? This remote board training workshop will walk through the procedures and considerations for legislative zoning decisions. Participants can choose one of the following dates: 

August 26, 2021 1:00-3:30pm or

September 14, 2021 5:30-8:00pm

 “We encourage board members and staff who are available to participate remotely in the live board workshops. We also understand that schedules are tight and conflicts arise. As such, we will be recording short video presentations on legislative zoning decisions and quasi-judicial zoning decisions, and we will make those available for purchase this fall.”
