Use and Environmental Law Committee is for lawyers whose practice or interest
involves zoning and regulatory approvals for all kinds of land development,
including subdivisions, site plans, special use permits, zoning restrictions
and compliance with other regulations (among them, federal flood zone
regulations, landmark and historical designations, and sensitive environmental
area designations) that control development and use, and the accompanying
environmental review issues. The Committee has a two-fold focus:
to serve as a forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas among lawyers
who have a significant practice in the land use/environmental area, and to
educate lawyers who do not generally practice in this area about how to discern
and address land use and environmental regulations that may impact a client’s
transactional goals, valuation, and other issues.
Committee membership is open to members of the Real Property Law Section.
