The Iowa League of Cities, Iowa State Association of Counties, Iowa Association of Regional Councils and ISU Extension are collaborating on a one-hour “Iowa Smart Planning Webinar” for city and county officials and planning and zoning commissioners. The Iowa Smart Planning Law was passed by the Iowa legislature and signed by the Governor this past April. Gary Taylor of ISU Extension will discuss the key elements of the law, the implications of the law on planning and zoning in Iowa cities and counties, and lessons we may be able to learn from other states that have adopted similar laws over the past twenty years. Among other things, the law created a Smart Planning Taskforce to make recommendations for improving local comprehensive planning. Mr. Taylor, who is also a member of the Taskforce, will provide his insights into the work that the Taskforce must undertake before November 15, when its report is due to the Governor and the legislature.
The webinar will be offered at 1:00 pm, and again at 7:00 pm on July 7. It is being hosted by the Iowa State Association of Counties.
