Webinar registration through Eventbrite: Role of the Zoning Board of Adjustment/Appeals
The Center for Land Use Education conducted a Spring webinar series for planning and zoning staff and new and continuing officials to learn about their roles and responsibilities related to zoning and subdivision regulations.
Join us for a photo tour of waterfront properties. We know that waterfront property values depend on clear water, and that the fisheries in a lake are also an indicator of water quality and habitat. We’ll take a look at a range of waterfront properties and discuss how they are likely to impact the lake or river, and whether they meet state shoreland standards.
Subdivision regulations provide a legal process for dividing and recording land. In this session, we’ll review state requirements for subdivisions, options for local land division ordinances, and the role of local government officials in reviewing plats and certified survey maps.
This session discusses what zoning is and why most Wisconsin communities have adopted it. Then we’ll cover the roles of different local government bodies in adopting, amending and administering zoning.
Meeting and Hearing Conduct
In this session, we’ll look at meeting vignettes to learn how to conduct more effective meetings and hearings. We’ll discuss the difference between legislative and quasi-judicial decision-makers and the importance of creating an effective record of planning and zoning decisions.
