Description

Fall 2017 DOS Training

Session 1: Form-Based Zoning
Session 2: Sign Regulation

We are excited to offer additional courses this year from the NYS Department of State, which go beyond the basics and delve into two important topics: form-based zoning and sign regulation.

Session 1: Form-Based Zoning, 4:00–6:00pm
This course is an overview of an alternative approach to zoning that considers design over use. It is based on many of the principles of Smart Growth and New Urbanism. Form-based zoning is helping to establish mixed use, neighborhood structure, and walkability as the new standard for development. The advantages of form-based zoning, how it differs from conventional zoning from development to administration, and some of the challenges local officials might encounter in implementing form-based zoning will be discussed.


Session 2: Sign Regulations, 6:30–8:30pm
Sign control isn’t just a zoning issue—when regulating signage, municipalities must be careful not to violate free speech. This course reveals how signage can be regulated for aesthetics and explores the boundaries of what municipalities may and may not regulate regarding signage, and includes references to case law. The course also offers tips on drafting sign regulations, which includes regulation of billboards and other off-premises signs and elimination of nonconforming signs.
