Venue: United Way Room
Address: San Francisco, CA

Scott Birkey will be speaking on an AEP MCLE panel entitled "Navigating the Legal and Political Pitfalls of Ballot Box Land Use Planning: What Lawyers, Planners, and Consultants Should Know". The panel will discuss roles, concerns, and strategies of all parties typically involved in initiatives for land use planning projects and policies. The speakers will share legal perspectives from the developer’s side and from the public interest side and discuss how planning initiatives affect and intersect with traditional community planning and environmental review processes, such as CEQA. On the practical side, the panel will review recent California examples of successful planning initiative campaigns as well as grassroots efforts against measures. Finally, the panel will address the question: are ballot initiatives rightly called an end-run around CEQA?

This event will take place on February 21, 2018 in San Francisco, CA.
