Learn the Concept of Zoning and Understand How Different Zoning Elements Interrelate and Become a Part of the Whole Zoning System.

Significant monies can be lost, or gained by property owners and investors who achieve, or prevent changes in zoning that impact those properties in which they have an interest. This apparent zoning ordinance complexity may lead to confusion about who needs to do what, to whom, and by what deadline in order to achieve a desirable, or prevent an undesirable change in zoning.

This session by expert speaker Carl Stephani will give you an understanding of the very simple logic behind the system of zoning so that you not only understand the meaning of zoning terminology, but also understand how the different elements of zoning inter-relate and how they become a part of the overall system of zoning as applied in the United States.

Key Takeaways:

  • This program will reveal that, upon dissection, all zoning ordinances are basically very simple.
  • There are only seven basic elements to every zoning ordinance.
  • These elements relate very logically to each other once they are each clearly identified.
  • Many zoning actions have flaws in them that can make them subject to legal attack.
  • Subdivision ordinances have separate controls over land development that need to be understood.
  • Understand how to use a zoning ordinance to efficiently and effectively accomplish land development objectives.
  • Understand the differences between zoning and subdivision ordinances.
  • Understand basic zoning terminology in the context of a complete zoning ordinance.
