A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. ~Matthew 16:4

Overview

The U.S. Supreme Court’s latest foray into the regulatory takings thicket, Koontz v. St. John’s River Water Management District, revisited the Court’s previous decisions on the constitutionality of exactions.  We will discuss whether this ruling is merely an expected clarification or the end of exactions as typically imposed by local governments. Providing a broader perspective will be a nationally-recognized land use law authority and practitioner, Dwight Merriam.  Offering their opinions on what Koontz may mean for those of us in the Arizona land use trenches are public planner Alan Stephenson and municipal attorney Frank Cassidy.

Turning from the nitty-gritty of exactions, our second session revisits the more lofty topic of form-based zoning codes, examining how this cutting edge regulatory concept has been turned into adopted zoning ordinances by Phoenix and Tucson.  As with any major zoning enactment in the post Prop. 207 era, learn how these initiatives addressed the potential for property value diminution claims.

Our luncheon speaker, Dwight Merriam, sets a lighter note with his “2014 ZiPLer Awards.”  So you think you’ve seen some wild and crazy zoning cases?  Dwight Merriam will top them.

Following lunch we offer two familiar concurrent sessions:  The ever-popular “Stump the Experts,” where you are afforded a free-ranging question and answer opportunity with our faculty; and ever-educational and ennobling “Ethics for Planners and Lawyers.”

The second afternoon session draws on the expertise of imminent representatives of Arizona’s land management, development and regulatory communities to examine the potential impacts of proposed listings under the Endangered Species Act.

We close the program with a review of legislative enactments and court decisions of interest to planners and lawyers.  Join us!
