Smart Growth Planning Law Seminar sponsored by Cleveland State U.

In light of trends toward more regionalism and "smart growth" considerations, this seminar will focus on:

?Landmark zoning/land use court decisions and how they influence planners and public officials in making more rational and legal land use and zoning choices. Both practicing planners and attorneys will present and discuss the significance of these cases on such factors as: formulating the comprehensive plan (B.J.Allen vs Congress Township); addressing the shifts in market supply and demand and the impact on development trends (Visconsi vs. Strongsville and Szentpetrey vs. Strongsville); evaluating what constitutes "advancing the public interest" (Jaylin Investments vs. Moreland Hills); understanding the range of land use and zoning choices that are reasonable to consider while protecting private property rights (Shemo vs. Mayfield Heights, et.al.); and

?The techniques and merits of working with developers in resolving potential disputes before they reach court.

 Who should attend: elected officials, law directors and land use attorneys, professional and citizen planners, and developers.

Moderator/Commentator: Alan Weinstein, Professor, Cleveland State University's Colleges of Law and Urban Affairs and Director of the Colleges' Law & Public Policy Program.

Speakers: David B. Hartt, President, D.B. Hartt, Inc, Planning and Development Consultant R. Todd Hunt, Attorney with Walter & Haverfield, LLP; law director for the City of Richmond Heights, and assistant solicitor for the City of Hudson Vince Papsidero, Planning Administrator for the City of Columbus, former planning consultant with ACP-Visioning & Planning, Ltd. Bruce Rinker, Attorney with Mansour, Gavin, Gerlack & Manos Co., L.P.A. and Mayor of Mayfield Village
