George A. Dean

Codes officials in Tennessee who have the responsibility of staffing and assisting local zoning boards (as well as the members of the zoning boards themselves) should get a wealth of information from this book. It not only reviews basic day-to-day kinds of concerns important to Codes officials but will in addition explains how and why those usually mundane tasks are important in the overall legal framework in which the zoning board functions. In addition, this book should be extremely valuable to any attorney representing a client before any local zoning board in Tennessee. The book also discusses the most important means of appeal from any decision of a local administrative body, including either a zoning board or planning commission, the common law writ of certiorari.
