This course provides an overview of zoning and land use regulation. Zoning is a type of public control that places many limits on how land is used. Each city or county places all its properties into zones for residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, or other uses. Land use regulations vary widely from state to state, county to county, and city to city. Property owners can sometimes make requests for changes to the permitted uses and prohibited uses with applications for conditional uses, variances, zoning changes, or other requests.
|How to Make Yourself Indispensable||
Indispensable employees are always indispensable, no matter where they go or what they do. That’s because it’s more about attitude than skill set. They know the key to their success is to work smarter, not harder. They understand where to focus their energy to get the greatest return on their efforts. They take time out to plan and they offer a solution for every problem. They get the difference between being proactive and being reactive. They also know they are replaceable...and perhaps most importantly, they want to be replaceable.
