Session Description

Local governments hold the public right-of-way in trust for the benefit of the public; but rapid changes in technology, federal policy, and constitutional law are increasing demands for services and challenging local regulatory authority. Join Engaging Local Government Leaders’ GovLove podcast, experienced local government attorneys, and industry professionals to discuss best practices for right-of-way management in the face of emerging challenges. Planners will review local authority to regulate small wireless facilities, challenges presented by federal preemption, and news from the front lines as local governments litigate the Federal Communication Commission’s new rules. Panelists will discuss the unique demands from shared mobility services in the public right-of-way, including car-sharing, bikes, scooters, and more. Finally, nationally-recognized planning law professionals will discuss how the First Amendment is changing regulations of panhandling, charitable solicitation, and signs in the public right-of-way. Moderated by Kent Wyatt as part of ELGL’s #GovLoveLegal series, this session promises an engaging discussion on emerging issues for streets, sidewalks, and parks in every community.
