This event is by invitation only for municipal solicitors and town/city planners.
This one-day event will offer Rhode Island municipal solicitors and staff an opportunity to discuss emerging legal issues related to coastal hazards and land use. The State of Rhode Island has policies in place that require municipalities to address natural hazards and changing climate conditions, and several initiatives underway to provide data and decision support tools to municipal governments and property owners. As policy changes evolve from these efforts, municipal staff and solicitors will likely face emerging legal challenges. This workshop will allow attendees to better understand the data, tools, and projects underway at the state level, and a chance to discuss and exchange ideas related to how the legal community might address these topics as they evolve.
There is no cost to attend this program. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided.
The Rhode Island MCLE Commission has approved seven (7) credits, no ethics credits, for the workshop. AICP-CE credits are being requested.
Registration will close on Monday, November 23 at 5:00 PM.
STUDENTS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND, but you must register.
