Experienced municipal and land use attorneys bring you up to date on land use law. Examine the latest pronouncements of the Pennsylvania appellate courts on a range of topics including: the jurisdiction of a zoning hearing board to raise issues sua sponte; application of the Hertzberg criteria in variance cases; applicability of industry standards in exclusionary zoning cases; non-conforming uses; approval of settlement agreements in land development disputes; what constitutes an unreasonable condition in connection with the grant of a conditional use; and issues with subdivision and land development plans, including minimum lot size requirements. Our instructors also discuss pending legislation on review fees and permit extensions.
