PMPEI: Building a Strong Planning Commission

January 12, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

PMPEI Online Learning
Building a Strong Planning Commission

Tuesday, January 12, 2021
6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Members, Non-Members and PSAB Plus Members: $25 per class


A strong and well-organized planning commission is the key to a successful planning program. While MPC Article II provides the authority to have a planning commission it offers no guidance for how to be an effective unit serving the elected governing body and the community. Using hands-on activities and interactive discussions this course explores the full range of a planning commission’s work, how it can be organized to accomplish more of its goals, and what’s needed to prepare members to get involved in the group’s work.

The instructors are PMPEI approved.

Class size is limited to 25 so individual issues and questions can be addressed.
