Still need to fulfill your mandatory CM credits for Law?
Want to learn more about how recent housing legislation preempts local planning?
Join your fellow planners in a free webinar.

California is experiencing the nationwide trend of state legislation seeking to address the housing crisis, with numerous bills preempting local planning procedures. This session will review recent legislation – including SB 330, the suite of ADU bills, and the Housing Accountability Act – that have limited ad hoc review tools in favor of predictable and objective standards for residential projects. The session will discuss other pending California legislation and examples from other states that seek to re-think zoning exclusively for single-family residences.

The program will be presented by Eric Phillips, the Vice President for Policy and Legislation of the California Chapter and a partner at the law firm of Burke, Williams & Sorensen in San Francisco. Eric’s law practice focuses in the areas of land use, real estate, and CEQA compliance. He will be introduced by Stephen Velyvis, a partner in the Oakland law firm Burke, William, and Sorensen, and the Legislative Director for the Northern Section. Steve is a land use and environmental law attorney representing public agency and private clients in administrative proceedings and before state and federal trial and appellate courts.
