VIRTUAL LIVE WEBINAR An Introduction to Zoning: What is It and Why Should I Care
October 17, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
The way that land is used can have a significant impact on individual landowners, surrounding residents, and community members as a whole. Zoning is a land use regulation that sets standards for items such as land use, density, and lot dimensions. In Pennsylvania, local municipalities, including counties, are given the authority to enact zoning ordinances provided they follow the overall guidelines set forth by the state. While municipalities must follow these overall guidelines, they have flexibility in establishing specific standards. It’s important for local officials as well as landowners, business owners, and members of the public, to understand the purpose, process, and potential effects of zoning. This webinar will help participants increase their knowledge of zoning. As a result, they can be better prepared for potential future actions.
This informative webinar will review the importance of understanding the potential effects of zoning on businesses, landowners, and the public.
