Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Dublin Municipal Building
5200 Emerald Parkway, Dublin, OH
Join MORPC for a special presentation on Best Local Land Use Practices and learn about tools available to help minimize development impacts on water quality, save communities money, enhance property values and development flexibility, and meet existing stormwater requirements. Many of these voluntary land use practices could be potential implementation tools to support the MORPC facilitated Balanced Growth Plans throughout central Ohio.
Kirby Date, AICP, is the Program Manager of the Community Planning Program, helping to conserve resources and open space in northern Ohio through the encouragement of sensitive planning and development. The program was established in 1996 and is housed at Cleveland State University, Levin College of Urban Affairs. Ms. Date is also the outreach coordinator for Ohio Best Local Land Use Practices, part of the Ohio Balanced Growth Program. Examples of the Best Local Land Use Practices include comprehensive planning, conservation development, compact development, stream and floodplain protection, and natural areas establishment. Ms. Date will give a presentation and facilitate discussion about the practices.
