The BIA will be hosting a  Land Use 101 Seminar that provides an understanding on how local, state and federal regulations affect the land use process. The Land Use 101 briefing will be conducted by land use and real estate law expert, David Watson of Duane Morris. The laws governing real estate development can seem complex, confusing, contradictory and overwhelming. It is intended to provide a greater understating of the regulatory process that seems to change almost daily.  Anyone intending to develop property must contend with a host of federal, state and local statutes regulating use of land. This presentation serves as an introduction to some of the key regulatory concepts, particularly local land use regulation.
