Land owners and local governments often enter into agreements with the objective of fixing, if not increasing, public benefits while simultaneously reducing the uncertainty often associated with proposed but not yet built development. In this program, the authors of the newly published book “Development by Agreement: A Tool Kit for Land Developers and Local Governments” will provide an overview of the tool kit of agreements typically available to local governments and developers to solve community problems while providing increased development certainty in uncertain economic times. Examples of agreements include those needed to finance community benefits, to provide affordable housing, to assure school impact mitigation, or simply to provide a period of time and process for exclusively negotiating the terms of such agreements. The panel will delve into the statutory and judicial authority for such agreements, even when the required "nexus" between the agreed-upon benefits and the development may fall short of that required when an agency is simply imposing conditions of approval, fees or exactions. This program is a must for those looking to stimulate development in their communities.
