WSH Partner Headlines BAPA and FAU-Sponsored 2013 Legislative Update

On May 20, the Broward Section of the Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association (“BAPA”) and Florida Atlantic University School of Urban & Regional Planning co-hosted the 2013 Legislative Update, a one-hour public policy workshop providing an overview of the legislation adopted during the 2013 Florida Legislative session. WSH Partner James E. White gave a one-hour presentation on the adopted legislation and the anticipated effects relating to planning, growth management and local governments.  James is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners ("AICP") focusing his practice on land use and zoning, comprehensive planning, administrative and general municipal law. James is also Board Certified by the Florida Bar in City, County and Local Government Law.

WSH’s Public Land Use and Zoning Practice Group routinely represents local governments in all aspects of land use, planning, and zoning. Using a problem-solving and team approach, our attorneys provide advice and counsel to local governments on a range of issues from establishing and amending State-mandated comprehensive plans, small area plans, land development regulations, to reviewing and approving applications for planned unit developments, plats, site plans, and building permits. Our Local Government Division employs more than 30 attorneys practicing day-to-day municipal law; lawyers in the Division draft thousands of resolutions and ordinances each year, and draft legislation that is both understandable to the general public and able to survive legal challenge.
