On February 11, UCLA Law hosted a symposium, Local Agencies on the Cutting Edge: Emerging Challenges to Local Land Use Authority. This daylong conference addressed important new developments in local land-use law.
We now have a webpage devoted to the symposium, including links to video recordings of all the day’s sessions, as well as written materials and powerpoint presentations from the event.
The day’s panels included:
— What does Proposition 26 mean for local government land use and environmental fees?
— New legal developments in siting religious centers: RLUIPA and beyond
— The present and future of the public trust doctrine in California
— Cutting-edge issues in takings law
The symposium, co-sponsored by the Municipal Law Institute of the League of California Cities as well as our partner UC law schools at Berkeley and Davis, provided insights, information, and analysis on all these issues.
I hope people will find this page useful. I know I learned a lot at this conference!
