Learn drafting, illustration and presentation techniques that will improve how zoning codes are understood by all affected stakeholders.

Zoning is a complicated topic. Zoning codes are encyclopedic on coverage, and are governed by a complex web of state and federal statutes and constitutional principles. In addition, zoning codes are used by a variety of stakeholders, from attorneys and engineers representing applicants, to elected official and appointed planning commissioners, to the general public. Given this array of legal principles and users, what can we do to make zoning codes easier to use and understand? Fortunately, there are a variety of techniques to simplify zoning codes, including better writing, graphics, and technology. This topic will provide drafting, illustration and presentation techniques that will improve how zoning codes are understood by all affected stakeholders.
