A New Look at Reviewing Subdivision and Development Plans
October 21, 2014 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm$80
This course is designed for local officials, staff, and consultants involved in the front lines of reviewing subdivision and development plans. The local development review process prescribed by the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code can be complex. In addition there are related approvals following different timelines for state and federal permits. The process can frustrate local officials, developers, and the public. It can lead to community controversy and ill feelings when not handled well.
The course will examine the local government development review process – steps, timelines, and the roles of various officials and bodies doing the review. Information presented will be useful for both newcomers to the process and as a refresher for experienced officials and professionals. There will be hands-on exercises reviewing actual development plans. Instructors will provide a new look at ways to improve the process and make it a win-win for the community and developers in achieving sound, quality development.
