Zoning and Its Impact on Highest and Best Use @ Starkville, MS (location TBA)
Oct 13 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

 

REGISTRATION OPENING SOON.  PLEASE CHECK BACK.

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.

 

Pending:  7 hours of CE credit by the Appraisal Institute, MS Real Estate Commission and MS Appraiser Board.
