How To Combat Harmful Development In Your Town - The Watershed Institute

Thursday April 30, 2020
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Ever wonder how a strip mall was built in a formerly forested lot? Or how a fast-food shop emerged in a residential neighborhood? At this free, online workshop, you’ll learn how developers go through the steps they need to win approval from local planning and/or zoning boards. Join us on April 30 for this virtual workshop that will share tools and tips on how to effectively combat these projects.

Our panel of experts will break down sample applications that would be submitted to planning and zoning boards. You will learn how your community’s land use plans and zoning are formulated, how zoning variances are allowed (and how to fight such proposals), and other topics. The panel will explore the public’s rights throughout the process, and how to learn about projects before it’s too late to block or alter them.
