Description

Legal Trends I – Land Use Law - Meryl A.G. Gonchar

Legislation, regulations and court decisions relating to the land development review process continue to modify the legal framework within which real estate is developed. In Part I of this two-part seminar, a panel of land use attorneys will examine the most recent significant changes and discuss their implication for the future.


Reviving Dormant Projects: Expiration of Permit Extension Act - Meryl A.G. Gonchar

After extending the validity of permits and approvals for nearly a decade, the Permit Extension Act is finally expiring. The tolling period has ended for many permits as of Jan. 1, and will end completely as of June 30. Hear from a panel of experts on life after the PEA, including strategies for obtaining additional extensions from local land use boards per the MLUL; strategies for re-applying for local land use approvals when extensions are unavailable or denied; obtaining new or re-issued permits, approvals and LOIs from DEP and other state and county agencies; and due diligence when reviewing dormant projects. 


The Growing Trend of Mixed-Use Developments - Kevin J. Moore

New Jersey's demographics continue to change with more and more households making the choice to move into urban style housing to meet their desire to live, work, shop and play in the same community. Learn about the emerging trend of bringing together both residential and commercial components in mixed-use developments and their emerging role in the development community.


Legal Trends II - Environmental Law - Andrew B. Robins

Legislation, regulations and court decisions relating to environmental issues continue to modify the legal framework within which real estate is developed. In Part II of this two-part seminar, a panel of environmental attorneys will examine the most recent significant changes and discuss their implication for the future.

  

Site Remediation Regulatory Updates - Andrew B. Robins

Under the 2009 Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA), all remediation projects must be supervised by a LSRP. This seminar will discuss the implementation of the regulatory requirements and program structure on remediation and Brownfield redevelopment projects. Particular focus will be on the role of the Department's oversight, current and upcoming Guidance Documents, anticipated changes to Remediation Standards and stakeholders concerns, and initiatives to reform the SRRA. NJBA's policy and regulatory initiative to address the burdensome Ground Water Quality Standards will also be discussed.
