Zoning and Its Impact on Highest and Best Use @ Margaritaville Resort Biloxi
Jun 13 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

 

 

Instructor:  W. Michael Brooks, MAI

This seminar is designed to highlight the basic principles of property zoning and demonstrate practical aspects of the impact of zoning on highest and best use.  Contemporary zoning has evolved into today’s comprehensive land use regulations and includes concepts such as overlay districts and form based codes.  While the complexity of zoning codes has changed over time, protecting property values and assuring buyers that their neighborhood won’t change adversely remain as the primary goals of any zoning ordinance.  However, as neighborhoods move through their life cycle of growth, stability, decline and revitalization, alternative uses for particular properties in the neighborhood may develop prompting requests for zoning changes.

This seminar is offered free to those who attend the Drone Technology Seminar.  First to members, then to the general public on a first come, first served basis until all the slots are filled.

Approved for 4 hours of CE credit by the Appraisal Institute, MS Real Estate Commission and MS Appraiser Board.

Thanks to your hardworking Education Committee, with the special efforts of Jason Garner, we are returning to the Coast June 11-13 for our annual meeting!  We’ve reserved rooms at the Margaritaville Resort in Biloxi.   It is a fabulous facility.  Enjoy a beautiful day in the sun at the rooftop water playground. Float down the 450-foot Lazy River, experience the thrill of winding water slides, or relax in the lounge pool with a hand-crafted cocktail from the swim up bar.  Love the thrill of heights?  Soar through the sky on the Nation’s FIRST indoor Cloud Coaster which is part zip line/part roller coaster.  Click on the pic to go to the resort website and view all the amenities!  Check-in Sunday afternoon, then relax and soak in the ambiance of the Coast.  Plenty to see and do, and the famous Doe’s Steakhouse is on site.
