Legal scholars, planners and political scientists from the Midwest will come together at Washington University School of Law Dec. 3-4 to discuss the opportunities for reform in planning and land use regulation.
“Planning Reform in the New Century,” co-sponsored by the law school’s Center for Interdisciplinary Studies and the American Planning Association, will be held in Anheuser-Busch Hall, Room 310.
Rep. Marcy Kaptur and Paul Farmer, president of the American Planning Association, will serve as conference keynote speakers.
The conference features two days of panel discussions on political leadership in planning statute reform, contemporary planning efforts, sprawl and urban growth, housing and regulatory streamlining, and the impact of state and local planning programs.
“We stand at a critical time in our city planning history,” says Daniel Mandelker, the Howard A. Stamper Professor of Law and conference organizer. “The conference will address important issues ranging from how to provide affordable housing to reforming planning to cope with growth management problems.”
