The Community Development Office provides planning commissioner training to a limited number of municipalities and counties per request. These "Planning 101" sessions provide a general overview for planning commissioners who are new to the game, or in need of a refresher. The Community Development Office requests that those wishing to schedule a Planning 101 workshop invite neighboring jurisdictions' planning commissioners and elected officials in order to reach a broader audience and effectively use state resources.
The agenda can be calibrated to fit your specific needs, but typically includes the following elements:
The session usually takes 2 hours depending on the agenda, and we ask that we are the only item on the agenda if scheduled during a regular meeting time. Please contact Tareq Wafaie with any questions or to request a Planning 101 workshop in your neck of the woods.
"Attending the 'Planning 101' was most informative for me as a new member of the planning and zoning commission. DOLA's resources now and in the future will be very helpful to the city planning and zoning commission". - Planning Commissioner, 2011
