Class 1: Zoning Administration (PMPEI)

Tri-County Regional Planning Commission will offer a Zoning Administration course in March 2018 in partnership with the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Education Institute.
The course will take place 6 to 9:30 p.m. on three consecutive Thursdays, March 15, 22 & 29, at the Swatara Township Building, 599 Eisenhower Blvd., Harrisburg, PA 17111.
In this course, zoning hearing board members, zoning officials, and elected officials—regardless of experience—learn the basic principles, procedures, and information needed to effectively carry out their functions in the administration of municipal zoning. The course covers the technical aspects of zoning and how to build effective relationships with the public. Hands-on experiences and practice exercises are built into each session. Participants learn how to conduct effective and fair zoning hearings in a mock zoning hearing session.
Course topics include the principles of zoning, key zoning terms, the zoning administration team, zoning officer duties, enforcement notices, and zoning hearing procedures, variances, special exceptions/conditional uses, and nonconformities.
COST: $35 for the entire course.
CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS are available for engineers, land surveyors, geologists, attorneys, registered landscape architects and UCC officials.
NOTE: Attendance at all three sessions is required for completion of the course.
