Attorneys Kate Miller and Justin Pasay to present lecture on “Wireless Facilities: Managing the Approval Process” at the 2017 Municipal Law Lecture Series

On Saturday September 23rd and Saturday October 14th, Attorneys Kate Miller and Justin Pasay will be presenters at the 2017 Municipal Law Lecture Series. These lectures are intended for municipal officials with an interest in or responsibility for any aspect of municipal land use regulation, including members of planning and zoning boards, planners, land use administrators, select boards, town and city councilors, building inspectors, code enforcement officers, and public works personnel.

Their lecture will go over the following:

Does state or federal law trump local zoning for cell towers? How can Planning Boards and ZBAs protect municipal interests and comply with state and federal law when permitting wireless facilities? With all the changes in state and federal law over the past 8 years, it is hard to keep up! And mistakes can be expensive. This presentation will present an overview of the evolving law on permitting wireless facilities, plus provide specific recommendations for procedures your land use boards, municipal staff and regional planners can implement to ensure this tricky process is done right.
