Topic: Floodplain Regulation for Local Review Boards
Date: Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Time: 4:30 - 6:30 pm
Location: Wayne County Public Safety Building
Description: The essence of good planning is to develop areas most suitable to the environment and existing infrastructure, avoiding sensitive areas such as steep slopes, wetlands and floodplains. With increased storm intensity and years of building in flood prone areas, natural floodplains have been disrupted, resulting in severe damage to flood prone areas. This course is an overview of regulating development around flood plains, with a discussion of the National Flood Insurance Program, and trends in resiliency planning.

Location: Wayne County Public Safety Building

Topic: Tips for Regulating Telecommunications Facilities
Date: Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Time: 6:45 - 7:45 pm
Location: Wayne County Public Safety Building
Description: Changes to federal law have placed restrictions on the extent to which local governments can regulate both large telecommunications facilities and the small cell components of a growing 5G network. But that doesn’t mean the abilities of local officials to influence telecommunications towers and small cell systems are entirely pre-empted. This course aims to dispel misperceptions and answer questions about the application process for structures that nearly all of us utilize but few of us wish to have right outside our windows.
   
Topic: Spot Zone or Grant the Illegal Use Variance
Date: Tuesday, October 1, 2019
Time: 8:00 - 9 pm
Location: Wayne County Public Safety Building
Description: Neither, we hope. The title of this course is to catch your attention and aspires to help avoid both spot zoning and the granting of illegal use variances. This course explores how situations in which a proposed use different from those around it (which local officials agree would not be a detriment to the community) might best be handled—with a review of the use variance test, the definition of spot zoning, and a few cases that will help local officials make sure their zoning works for their municipality.
