Developing the 21st Century: Land Use, Construction Law, and Project Finance in the Built Environment
Tuesday, January 25, 2011 9 AM - 5 PM

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
This multi-disciplinary investigation of critical Built Environment issues will explore community benefits agreements and the “disconnect” between local land use practices and regional smart growth and sustainability agendas; the need for, and the manner of, modernizing public construction procurement laws for all public owners as a first step to move New York construction law into the 21st Century; and necessary statutory conditions for modernizing public finance laws, in particular the authorization of public-private partnerships.
