Conference Highlights
Dear Colleague:
Once again, Florida’s growth management landscape is changing. Last November,
Florida voters overwhelmingly passed the Water and Land Conservation Amendment
to Florida’s Constitution. The Amendment requires that one third of documentary
stamp tax revenues be placed in the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to be spent on
environmental initiatives. As this is written, the Florida Legislature is considering major
changes in State water policy and environmental law to implement Amendment 1.
These changes will have significant, long-term impacts on development in Florida.
We are honored to have Jonathan Steverson, Secretary of the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, join our faculty to explain how Amendment 1 will
be implemented.
You will also learn from leaders in the industry on these other hot topics:
• The Essentials: Legislative Update, Case Law Review and the Bert Harris Act
• Winning Your Case
• Department of Economic Opportunity Update
• Is There a Future for Growth Management in Florida?
• Mobility Issues
• Quasi-Judicial Proceedings
• Case Study of a Sector Plan
• Vested Rights, Bert Harris and the Role of the Courts
• Municipal Land Use
• Ethics: Technology and Social Media
• The “Hillcrest” Odyssey
Whether you are a private or in-house practitioner, developer, planner, builder,
architect, investor, engineer, environmental professional or in any way involved with
or affected by land use law and growth management, this is the one Conference you
won’t want to miss.
We look forward to seeing you in August.
