The latest offering in the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute Conference series -- "The Next West" -- will take place at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law March 3-4, 2011.
“This year marks the 20th anniversary of the annual Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute Conference and, equally important, the emergence of a new kind of west," William Shutkin, Executive Director of the Institute, said.
"The 'Next West,' this year’s conference theme, is what awaits us as we grapple with the recent economic collapse, climate change, population growth and increasing constraints on our natural resources," he said. "It’s a singular opportunity to redefine and rebuild not just the region but the nation, disguised as an insurmountable challenge.
"That’s what this year’s conference is about -- engaging the tough issues of the day with an eye toward tomorrow’s opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship in the way we use our land and natural resources and the way we develop our communities and economies. From technology and transportation to housing and economic development, the land use playing field is vast and full of exciting opportunities for those willing to chase them.”
The Institute, which is located at the College of Law, serves the public as an interdisciplinary, non-partisan forum for land use and environmental issues in the Rocky Mountain West.
