You are cordially invited to attend
Equitable Solutions: A Better Way To Resolve
Land Use & Environmental Disputes
a workshop co-sponsored by Mountain Voices Alliance
and Asheville PARC
Wednesday, April 20, from 9 am – noon
United Way 50 South French Broad Ave. downtown Asheville
Presented by Richard Klein
Community & Environmental Defense Services, Owings Mills, MD
An Equitable Solution is one which fully resolves citizen concerns while allowing applicants to achieve most of their goals. When combined with other approaches refined by CEDS, such as Support Decision-Makers First and Smart Legal Action, the Equitable Solutions approach triples the likelihood of citizens resolving development-related concerns.
In addition, Equitable Solutions minimizes those lose-lose situations where public officials are asked to chose between what is legally right and that which is popular. Finally, the approach expands the base of public support for innovative policies that yield more growth benefits while enhancing quality of life for both current and future residents.
The event will benefit non-profits, city & county planners and staff, elected officials, realtors, builders – both green and traditional, land use attorneys, and other stakeholders.
In addition to the morning workshop, there will also be an evening session planned for interested community members.
Non-profits are welcome to invite their members and volunteers to this session.
Wednesday, April 20 – 6:30-8:30 pm
Jubilee! Garden Room – 101 Patton Ave. downtown Asheville
