Land Use Incentive Program

Save money with LMCIT's Land Use Incentive program!

The Land Use Incentive program rewards LMCIT property/casualty program member cities that successfully complete online training about land use.

Qualifying member cities earn a savings of as much as $3,750 per land use claim. Cities that do not meet the training requirements will have a greater co-pay for each land use claim.

The web-based training is designed to make land use decisions less confusing, as well as help cities avoid expensive land use claims and lawsuits. Cities can qualify for the incentive at any time by meeting the training requirement, at which point the city will receive an endorsement. Any land use claims made against the city after the city gets the endorsement will qualify for the savings.

How to qualify
The incentive is available on an ongoing basis to all member cities that certify at their renewal that all the following city officials successfully completed the training:

  • A quorum of the city council.
  • The chair and another planning commission member.
  • The city planner or another staff person with lead responsibility for planning activities.
