About the course


Spring 2018 Topic: Legislative Zoning Decisions

Equip your development review boards to be more efficient and effective. These half-day workshops are offered in regions across the state for boards making development decisions. Each year we alternate between quasi-judicial decision-making and legislative zoning decisions. For 2018 the focus is legislative zoning decisions such as rezonings and zoning ordinance amendments.

What factors can the governing board consider when evaluating a zoning ordinance amendment? What are the planning board's powers and limits when considering a rezoning request? And, more broadly, what is the role of planning for North Carolina local governments. Through group discussion, lecture, and case studies we will explore these questions and more.

These workshops are inteneded for boards making or advising on land development regulation decisions, especially governing boards and planning boards, as well as planning and zoning staff.

Regional board workshops are coordinated in conjunction with American Planning Association-North Carolina Chapter and other local or regional partners.

All workshops are 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Slides and reference materials will be posted online in advance of the workshops. AICP and CZO credit pending.
