This Friday! Free ABA webinar on comprehensive planning (details included)

From Sarah Adams-Schoen (Arkansas-Little Rock):

As chair of the ABA State & Local Gov't Law section's Land Use Committee, I host semi-monthly webinars on land use law topics. This month's will be presented by Portland, Oregon attorney Jennifer Bragar on comprehensive planning law. Among other things, Jennifer will discuss recent judicial opinions from states that ascribe quasi-constitutional status to comprehensive plans, and the closer scrutiny the courts apply in these cases to assure consistency or conformity of local actions--including adoption or amendment of land use regulations--with the applicable comprehensive plan. Given that what constitutes the comprehensive plan can include a locality's previous land use decisions and its zoning ordinance, consistency determinations must often take aim at a moving target.

These webinars are open to anyone and free (they're not accredited for CLE, but you can self-accredit if needed). 

Here are the details:
