Rarely does so much change occur in such short a time. Only two years ago, the United States was still in the Paris Climate Agreement, the Obama Administration had adopted its Clean Water Rule, and the Clean Power Plan was just beginning to pick up steam. Things are quite different now. The new federal administration is packed with policymakers who have institued change, and who promise even more.
 
No matter which side of the development process you are on, to navigate the hurdles to successful land development you need to be informed, up to date and agile. We have designed this conference for you as a one-day crash course on the most pressing land use law and policy, including:
 
 
· Housing 2018: Will the Legislature’s Housing Package Have a Meaningful Impact?;
 
· Land Use Challenges Facing Local Government—A Long-Term View;
 
· Land Use Development, Fire, Storms, and Sea Level Rise;
 
· What the Last Few Years Have Taught Us about Land Use, Water Supply and Scarcity;
 
· Los Angeles’ Measure S and the Use of Anti-Development Initiatives and Referendum;
 
· The Cannabis Connection—A Panel Discussion on Land Use Regulations and Recreational
Marijuana Legal Challenges;
 
· California Land Use—In a Head-On Collision with Pending Federal Policy;
 
· Essential Changes to CEQA Laws and Guidelines; AND
 
· A KEYNOTE ADDRESS by Senator Scott Wiener (D-Dist.11), the author of S.B. 35, on “California and Its Unique Housing Needs”
 
 
Whatever your role in the development process, this comprehensive, practice-oriented conference will flesh out what every land use practitioner needs. You’ll learn, from our Faculty of top-tier, active experts—representatives of both development and our communities—how to navigate California’s regulatory landscape You’ll gain practical insights and problem-solving strategies from representatives of consulting firms, stakeholder associations, and top water attorneys from throughout the state, including those from Best, Best & Krieger; Cox, Castle & Nicholson; Gresham, Savage; Jackson Tidus; and Miller Starr Regalia.

This is a must attend event. Be sure to register today for this special conference and find out what impact these critical topics will have on each other—and how the potential outcomes will impact your practice, municipality or organization in the future.
NOT ALL LAND USE AND NATURAL RESOURCES LAW CONFERENCES ARE THE SAME! 
Register today for the only land use and natural resources law conference in 2018 that’s produced by the publishers ofCalifornia Land Use Law & Policy Reporter, a California-based conference provider that has offered publications and water law conference programs specifically for the California Water Bar since 1989. This year, as always, the expert publishers, editors, and advisors of California Land Use Law & Policy Reporter have been instrumental in planning this conference for you.
These seasoned, in-the-trenches legal professionals are uniquely qualified to let you know not only what’s happened but, more important, what’s coming down the pike in the future.
