New Edition of Colorado Land Planning and Development Law is Available

April 26, 2018

green-book-11th-edition-cover-2The Colorado “Green Book” on planning law has been updated for 2018. For the past 25 years, this resource – formally Colorado Land Planning and Development Law – has served as a plain English guide for both planners and lawyers to understand recent statutory changes in the law, as well as court cases interpreting the law. Originally published by the Colorado Chapter of the American Planning Association, and later Bradford Publishing Company, the Green Book is currently published by the Colorado Bar Association. Every three years (or so) a group of volunteer Colorado land use lawyers collaborates to update the content and ensure its accuracy, and for 25 years Clarion Director Don Elliott has served as the General Editor for this effort. The authors included in the 2018 update include Alison Altaras and Cory Rutz Paul (Otten Johnson Robinson Neff and Ragonetti PC), Benedetti Esq., Gerald Dahl (Murray Dahl Kuechenmeister & Renaud LLP), Barbara Green (SullivanGreen Seavey LLC), Catherine Hance (Davis, Graham & Stubbs LLP), Eric Heil (Heil Law and Planning), Norman “Rick” Kron and Gilbert McNeish (Spencer Fane LLP), Todd Messenger (Fairfield and Woods PC), Ronda Sandquist (Brownstein, Hyatt Farber & Schreck LLP), many of whom are veterans of multiple Green Book updates, and all of whom volunteered their time and talents for this effort.
