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. It emphasizes PA's Municipal Planning Code (MPC) as the source of authority to regulate development.
New to the course are flexible design concepts and options for better project design. Participants will 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.
NOTE: Attendance at all 3 sessions is required for completion. No CM credits will be offered through APA due to their co-sponsorship.
For questions, email Ben Warner or call 717-234-2639.
