This event is a one day event. The session focuses on major legislative actions passed by the Virginia General Assembly in the past year. The program is designed to provide BZA members, planning commissioners, and professional planners with the most timely and relevant information to guide their work on emerging issues.
The 2012 Legal Seminar will cover four topics of interest to planning commissioners, professional planners, zoning officials and local elected officials. We will review the legislative actions taken by the Virginia General Assembly that will impact local planning and zoning practices beginning July 1 of this year. Our second topic on May 31 will be commentary from VDOT officials (Rob Hofrichter and Paul Grasewicz) regarding a new transportation related law that mandates the transportation component of a local comprehensive plan must be consistent with the state-level transportation planning initatives.Our third topic of substance during the Legal Seminar will focus on the value and symbolic importance associated with taking an oath of office upon appointment as a member of a local planning commission or board of zoning appeals. Our final topic for the day will be a dialogue on the topic of the anti-"Agenda 21" movement, wherein proponents oppose ‘global to local’ planning for ‘sustainable development’.
