Land Use Training

November 23, 2021 by admin

The Utah Land Use Institute is pleased to announce that the Office of the Property Rights Ombudsman has approved a grant that will allow us to provide training to local leaders, free of charge to sponsors and those who attend. The training can include three-hour, one four-hour, or two – two-hour workshops. Three hours of the training are approved for continuing made education credit for real estate professionals and appraisers. Four hours of credit will be available for attorneys and AICP planners. We are authorized to hold as many as forty sessions across the state. Co-Sponsored by the Utah League of Cities and Towns, the Utah Chapter of the APA.

The training will include a free copy of Utah’s new handbook to land use regulation—Ground Rules, published by the ULUI. This is a comprehensive, plain English guide to zoning rules and procedures, which sells on Amazon for $21.95 plus tax and shipping.

Trainers may include the handbook’s author, Craig Call; Wilf Sommerkorn, Deputy Executive Director of the ULUI; and others. Plenty of time is provided for local officials to offer their perspectives and suggestions as well.

This workshop qualifies toward the required four-hour annual training requirement for planning commissioners. With the permission of the local sponsor arranging for the training, we may also invite real estate professionals, planners, attorneys, citizens, and others to join in the conversation. We encourage officials from nearby communities to meet together for the workshops. Conducted in a conversational style with an engaging discussion of real-life examples from Utah court decisions, this training is meant to provide an orientation to the basics of planning and zoning laws, procedures, and best practices.

Let us set up a time to involve your planning commissioners, council members, appeal authority officials, and others in this free training opportunity—all we need is a local sponsor, a location and a date. Contact or call 801-859-2255.
