Questions, interviews: [email protected]

Mr. Beard will discuss the many ways government agencies are hampering coastal landowners in their right to use, develop, and enjoy their properties—and what you can do to help them.

Prominently featured in his informative presentation will be a major property rights case that he argued and won before the U.S. Supreme Court in June: Koontz v. St. Johns River Management District.  A resounding win for property owners, Koontz severely restricts agencies’ ability to impose fees, monetary exactions, and other financial obligations on landowners who seek permits to make use of and develop their properties.

The presentation will include time for Q&A to answer any questions or concerns about local land-use issues.

Paul Beard successfully argued Koontz vs. Johns River Management District before the Supreme Court – a huge win for property owners. The case severely restricts permitting agencies’ ability to impose financial obligations (also known as monetary exactions) on property owners who seek permits to use their lands.  This sort of monetary extortion – now made extremely difficult by the Koontz decision – is rampant in the coastal zone, especially (again) by the California Coastal Commission.  Mr. Beard is a Principal Attorney in PLF’s Property Rights Group. As head of PLF’s Coastal Land Rights Project, he oversees litigation against coastal land-use agencies that violate landowners’ private property rights, especially the California Coastal Commission. His cases on behalf of property owners include challenges to unconstitutional conditions on land-use permits and the unlawful assertion of jurisdiction by land-use agencies over private property and its development.  Beyond his litigation duties, Mr. Beard also manages PLF’s Florida and Hawaii offices, overseeing those offices’ administrative and litigation activities.
