The land planning process today is heavily regulated and complex. This session will highlight real life examples from three senior level executives who will draw upon past experiences
and demonstrate how they turned adversity into opportunity by employing creative and environmentally sound land planning
techniques. The presentation will provide the audience with environmental solutions that can be successfully applied to their own projects. The panel will present their challenges, review
the methodology and application of their solutions and discuss lessons learned throughout the process.
