The online version of LGA’s June 4, 2015 Managing Marcellus program, “Land Use, Zoning, and Addressing Impacts of Shale Gas Drilling After the PA Supreme Court Act 13 Rulings,” as part the Managing Marcellus series is now available. This program addresses how Pennsylvania municipalities experiencing shale gas development can best address gas industry impacts following the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and Commonwealth Court decisions.
This program looks at the various community development and zoning issues confronting municipalities, including issues of planning and regulation, community impact, property rights and interactions with other regulators, such as the state Department of Environmental Protection. Panels of planners and lawyers experienced in local government and shale gas issues present analysis of the situation, consider possible community objectives and review a range of responses available for communities based on actual experience.
