2015 Annual Land Use Conference

The Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute at the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law is pleased to announce the 2015 Annual Land Use Conference, Western Places/Western Spaces: Building Fair & Resilient Communities.

The conference will be held on Thursday and Friday, March 12 & 13, 2015 at the University of Denver campus.

A bonus workshop, Local Responses to Fracking, will be held on Wednesday, March 11. With the emergence of new fracking technology, oil and gas development is beginning to occur in many communities that have never experienced it before. This all-day workshop will provide an overview of the wide range of practical tools and approaches that local governments can use to address local impacts.

This year’s featured track will focus on the topic of resilience. With fires, floods, and drought shaping—and reshaping—communities across the West, many are looking for new ways to address disasters and recovery.
