TCRPC will offer a course in Subdivision & Land Development Review this October in partnership with the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Education Institute (PMPEI).
The course will take place 6 to 9:30 p.m. on three consecutive Thursdays, October 3, 10 & 17, at the Swatara Township Building, 599 Eisenhower Blvd. Cost to attend is $35 per person. (You may register 6 additional people.)
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 MPC as the source of authority to regulate development. Planning commissions have a central role play in the land development process which is an integral part of a community’s comprehensive planning program. 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 are available. Space is limited.
NOTE: Attendance at all three sessions is required for completion.
Co-sponsored by the American Planning Association’s PA Chapter, Central Section.
