About the Community Planning Academy

Training for Planning Officials provides valuable knowledge, resources, and tools that give planning commission members and others involved in the planning process confidence in making educated, effective decisions to help shape their community. Attendees will learn the history and legal foundations of planning and zoning; take a deep dive into the creation and implementation of a comprehensive plan; and engage in interactive modules that teach them how to incorporate best practices in their own communities in the areas of meeting management, preparation, and leadership. Sessions will also expose participants to the role of planning in areas such as land use; urban design; transportation; natural resources; equity; resiliency; housing; and arts and culture.

The fall session is a six-part series that will take place from 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Thursday, October 22
  • Wednesday, October 28
  • Thursday, November 12
  • Thursday, November 19
  • Thursday, December 3
