Resolving Land Use and Environmental Conflicts Through Mediation
November 14, 2013 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm| $10
Join the San Diego Sections of The Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP) and The American Planning Association (APA) for a luncheon on land use and environmental mediation. This program will demonstrate how mediation, in accordance with California state law, may be used to resolve a wide variety of land use and environmental disputes. These include conflicts arising under the California Environmental Quality Act, the Subdivision Map Act, the Planning and Zoning Law, the Permit Streamlining Act and other state land use statutes. They also may arise under such federal regulatory programs as the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act and the Clean Water Act. The program will show the distinctions between mediation and other dispute resolution methods, such as judicial proceedings and arbitration, and how mediation may be used in conjunction with litigation. The use and benefits of mediation will be shown through case examples, including potential use of mediation in current land use disputes.
Lunch will be provided and will be served starting at 11:30 am.
Please arrive early so we can get started promptly at 12 pm.
