  • Dealing with Conflict in Local Land Use Decision-making
    Wed., May 9, 2018, 10:30 am – 12:00 noon
    Although land use planning is often accompanied by conflict, effective, proactive communication between local planning officials and the public can go a long way to minimize conflict. It can also inform the planning process by ensuring that the interests, concerns, and values of the public and other community stakeholders are understood by planners and considered when planning decisions are made. This session describes several public participation strategies and techniques that support an inclusive and civil planning process.

    Presented by Bill Rizzo, Professor, UW-Extension (retired).
