On Oct. 9, Mark Wyckoff, senior associate director of the MSU Land Policy Institute and director of the Planning & Zoning Center at MSU, traveled to Traverse City to update community planners in the 10-county region served by Networks Northwest on a variety of legal issues. Most time was spent on a wide array of pending legislation (reported in the Sept. issue of Planning & Zoning News) that may affect the practice of local planning and zoning. Recent federal and state Supreme Court opinions of consequence and a handful of new laws were also summarized. Wyckoff answered many questions from the nearly 30 people present and considerable interest was focused on the legislature’s efforts to create a new structure for regulating medical marijuana provisioning centers. See especially HB 4209, 4210, and 4827.
