Reconciling Quality of Life and Development

April 26, 2016

A growing number of municipalities are looking for ways to reconcile local quality of life consistent with new development, including redevelopment. In this program, speakers described the best practices that municipalities are employing, what legal authority they are using to do so, and what processes municipalities that seek to follow this approach can use to create buy-in. The target audience is elected officials, solicitors, developers, planners, and interested citizens.

This event was co-sponsored by the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania.

Videos of the panels and the corresponding PowerPoint presentations are available below.
