Planning commissions have a central role to play in the land development process, which is an integral part of a community’s comprehensive planning program. This course deals with the work of planning commissions in the subdivision and land development review process -- from pre-application meetings through project completion.
Extensively revised in 2005, the course emphasizes the PA Municipalities Planning Code as the source of authority to regulate development. New in the course are flexible design concepts and options for better project design. Participants learn new skills for administering the review process, reviewing plans, and calculating impacts of development. The course also covers techniques for incorporating internal and external reviews in plan review, and how information sharing can improve local and regional planning.
Continuing education credits available for engineers, land surveyors, geologists, attorneys, registered landscape architects and UCC officials.
