Webinar: Special Assessments Create Special Benefits: Avoiding an Unconstitutional Taking (CM | 1.5)
March 18, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
In the summer of 2010, the South Dakota Supreme Court unanimously upheld a circuit court appeal of a special assessment levied by the City of Pierre to replace curb and gutter. The Supreme Court decision confirming a “taking” had occurred ended a long process which began with a special assessment notice to the affected citizens in the December of 2007. The presentation will focus on balancing the special assessment fee with the “special benefits” that must be received by the assessees to avoid a “takings.” The presentation will also discuss community organizing, preparation to become a witness, and the AICP Code of Ethics. The presenter was a witness, an assessee and petitioner in the case, a community organizer, and assisted in preparing the legal briefs. The presentation will discuss the material from an assessee’s or petitioner’s perspective. This webcast is sponsored by the Western Central Chapter.
