Here is a pretty long list of events I put together. I hope it’s helpful for everyone! 

The 23rd Annual Land Use Law and Planning Conference, in Downtown, January 23rd.

Now in its twenty-third year, the UCLA Extension conference offers a big-picture view of land use law and planning practice, with knowledgeable speakers providing succinct and provocative updates on core state and federal case law and legislation as well as practice pointers on basic land use law and planning issues. The conference is essential for attorneys, planners, environmentalists, and developers who need to know how land use law and planning is changing and affecting their interests. This is an all day conference.

 VerdeXchange Green Marketmakers Conference, in Downtown, January 26th.

On January 26, 2009, engage with leading technology, energy, and regulatory “green marketmakers” who are proactively responding to California’s market-defining initiatives for addressing climate change and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As outlined in Assembly Bill 32 (signed into law 2006), California’s 2005 Executive Order and a 2004 CARB regulation to reduce passenger car GHG emissions, California’s efforts aim to reduce GHG emissions to 1990 levels by 2020 and below 1990 levels by 2050 – reductions of 25 percent and 80 percent respectively. These initiatives will undoubtedly shape the national and international markets.

 UCLA Workshop on SB375 – California’s New Anti-Sprawl Law, @ UCLA, January 27th.

The most important and far-reaching land use legislation since the Coastal Act, SB 375 could transform development and the built environment in California. Now that the bill has been signed by the Governor, what’s next? What does SB 375 mean for local governments, developers, community groups, and commuters? Bill sponsor Tom Adams of the California League of Conservation Voters will join other stakeholders and panelists to address these issues. This conference is sponsored by the Emmett Center on Climate Change and the Environment, the Evan Frankel Environmental Law and Policy Program, and the Richard S. Ziman Center for Real Estate at UCLA.
