CLE Seminars

This Land Is Your Land. This Land is My Land. Or Is It Public Land? The Rules Have Changed

Thursday, October 18, 2018
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Location: MBA CLE Room

Credits: 1.0 Hour Substantive

Moderator(s): Marc D. Jonas, Esq.; Bernadette Kearney, Esq.

Speaker(s): David Dembe, Esq.; John Dooley, Esq.; and Catherine M. "Kate" Harper, Esq.

Topic: Can a Borough or School District sell land it no longer needs? Maybe and maybe not. Recent cases, In Re: Petition of the Borough of Downingtown and Board of Directors of the Hatboro-Horsham School District v. Ambler, have arguably changed the law in this regard. Can a School District condemn land it needs for a new school? Maybe not - if it has a conservation easement or farmland easement on it. Act 45 of 2018 definitely changed the law.

Registration: Lunch and registration will begin at 12:00 pm.
