While every community is unique, the elected officials, planning staff, and appointed or “citizen” planners who keep them running serve similar functions no matter the jurisdiction. ARC’s Community Planning Academy (CPA) offers high-quality, cost-effective training to help these planners and decision makers guide their communities to the future they desire.
Training for Planning Officials: April 24, 2020 & May 29, 2020
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.
Cost: The course cost is $275 per person and includes breakfast, lunch and all workshop materials.
Cancellation/Refund Policy: No refunds will be given for cancellations after Friday, April 10.

Topical Forums: TBD
Topical Forums will be offered throughout the Summer and Fall, covering some of the most pressing planning topics our region currently faces, including improving mobility throughout the region for every resident, providing sufficient affordable housing for our current and future residents, and creating lifelong communities for our aging population. Training for Planning Officials attendees will receive free admission to these forums. Registration is still required – attendance at the Training for Planning Officials does not guarantee a spot at the forums.
