Planning Politics and the Public Interest: Lessons Learned in Montgomery County

  • Coblentz Seminar Room, Hood College 650 Blazer Trail Frederick, MD, 21701 United States (map)

Royce Hanson is a recognized leader and author in land use policies in the nation, with much of his expertise gained from his experiences with constituents of our southern neighbor, including those developing land for homes and businesses and others committed to protecting natural lands and lifestyles. Hence, his insights are highly appropriate for the on-going decisions we in Frederick now face.

Dr. Hanson will be presenting a seminar at Hood College sponsored by the Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies on April 12, 2018 at 7:00 PM in the Coblentz Hall Seminar Room. The seminar is free and open to the public. Dr. Hanson will address audience questions following the lecture. Please join us!
