Updates from Pace Land Use Law Center

New updates from the Pace Land Use Law Center...  

(I'm always happy to post updates from any land use centers, clinics, etc.  I try to re-post major updates when I see them, but I'm sure I miss many, as well.) 


Planning and Zoning for Solar Energy


The Land Use Law Center joins the NY-Sun PV Trainers Network, which is part of the NY-Sun Initiative, a statewide initiative that aims to increase the number of solar electric (also referred to as photovoltaic, or PV) systems across New York State by stimulating the marketplace, so that costs associated with installing solar electric systems for residents and businesses are reduced. As a network partner, the Center is creating resources and workshops to present strategies and best practices for developing a clear, comprehensive, and enforceable solar regulatory framework.



Promoting the Use of Green Infrastructure

On behalf of the City of Newburgh Conservation Advisory Council (CAC), the Center completed a Green Infrastructure Guide.  The Guide directs CAC decision-making, recommending the use of natural processes to address stormwater and air quality impacts that result from development.  The Guide is available by clicking here.

Building Community through Effective
Public Engagement


The Center partnered with the Town of New Castle to lead a public engagement process that identified residents' planning goals, objectives, and vision.  The resulting New Castle Master Planning Public Engagement Report, will inform the Town's new master plan, which the Center will continue to help develop.

Protecting the Environment Through Land Use Law

A new book by Prof. John R. Nolon, "Protecting the Environment Through Land Use Law: Standing Ground", takes a close look at the historic struggle that local governments face balancing land development with natural resource conservation.  For more details and ordering information click here.
