Save the Date: November 30, 2005: Environmental Justice Conference

ELPC will co-sponsor a Chicago workshop on the intersection of environmental justice and local land use planning and zoning on November 30th.  The workshop is intended to help members of planning and zoning boards, local legislative bodies, local chief elected officials, municipal attorneys and professional planners develop a greater awareness of how to incorporate environmental justice principles into land use planning and zoning actions.

Leading national and regional practitioners and experts will present practical advice and case studies to demonstrate how social equity goals can be effectively integrated into local planning regulations and zoning laws in this region.  To further assist attendees in their day-today decision-making, each participant will leave the workshop with a comprehensive set of resource materials.  Limited travel scholarships will be available for participants.

For more information contact Patricia Salkin, psalk@mail.als.edu or Barbara Mabel, bmabe@mail.als.edu at the Government Law Center of Albany Law School.
