Description

Fitting a Public Safety project to a site location brings a host of requirements and typically a rather complex review process by the controlling jurisdiction. The project may be scrutinized by a planning commission, architectural review board, or required to seek zoning code appeal(s). Learn the fundamentals of zoning codes and their influence on your project's specific attributes. Case studies will offer examples of how to garner community support and obtain approvals from citizen-led architectural review boards and planning commissions.

Learning Objectives
• Learn the basics of how zoning codes are written and key terms to be familiar with.
• Learn strategies on how to garner public support and acceptance for your project before and during the building design process.
• Learn strategies on how to successfully present a project at a citizen-led Planning Commission, Architectural Review Board, or Board of Zoning Appeals hearing
