Enforcement of Zoning and Other Local Laws

Course Overview

Municipalities have various regulations that are an extension of their police power that aren’t necessarily enforced by the police—zoning, property maintenance, and noise regulations, for example. This session reviews how these regulations are enforced, with discussion of the relationship between the enforcement officer and the review boards, the effect of an appeal of an enforcement action to the zoning board of appeals, and judicial enforcement of violations.

This course is 1.5 hours in length.
