RMLUI’s Annual Land Use Conference is the place for land use and development professionals in the West to share knowledge and network. With more than 450 attendees annually, RMLUI’s conference helps define and influence the West’s land use and development future.

Examining the Past, Exploring the Future
March 10 & 11, 2016

This year’s Western Places/Western Spaces conference addressed the transformative land use legal and policy developments in the Rocky Mountain West that have influenced the shape of our communities today. We also explored the trends and innovations—like demographic shifts, climate change, and economic forces—that are likely to affect the future of the West.
