Managing the Pressures of a Planning Office »

2023 Fall Conference, September 28, 2023 2:00 pm

Cities and towns across the country are facing an unprecedented amount of growth which is directly reflected in the huge influx of development applications being received by local governments. Most planning and zoning departments don’t have the staff available to accommodate timely review of all applications in addition to working on special projects to continue to plan for the future. To compound the issue, many of these same cities and towns are developing under outdated regulatory and policy documents leading them to navigate the storm without the necessary tools to achieve desired development goals. This session will provide some insight into how the public and private sector can work together to realize these goals, what managers/directors can do to set everyone up for success, and tools for planners to manage their workload and stress.

Short-term Rentals: The Pros and the Cons »

2023 Fall Conference, September 28, 2023 10:10 am

Short-term rentals are a concern in communities across the state. As Weber County has worked with property owners and elected and appointed officials, we have adopted a code that will help maintain neighborhood character and allow for STRs in a well-regulated way. Weber County has also partnered with a third-party enforcement group to help gather information about STRs in the County and respond to residents’ concerns. This session will discuss the progress we’ve made in enforcement and regulation of STRs.
