On October 7, 2016 I’ll be presenting at the League of California Cities Annual Conference about drones and how cities can effectively regulate their use while still allowing for their benefits. From the panel description:
The FAA estimates 1 million drones were sold during the 2015 holiday season. Learn about the effects of the 2015 FAA drone registration regulations and the spring 2016 commercial drone regulations on municipalities. Focus on what municipalities can and cannot do to combat privacy, noise, and nuisance issues raised by small drones through the types of ordinances allowed and not allowed due to FAA pre-emption. Discussion will also surround how these regulations affect municipal airports.
