DCA to host Community Planning Institute
Elected officials, planning and zoning administrators and staff, planning/zoning commissioners, citizen planners, City/County administrators or managers, other staff involved with planning, zoning or other land use management techniques, as well as Regional Commission staff members, would benefit from the training, according to DCA representatives.
DCA, in partnership with the Georgia Planning Association, conducts this class annually to help local governments understand the local planning process. The upcoming class, called “Preparing and Implementing Your Comprehensive Plan,” is a 2-day workshop that includes sessions on such topics as the community’s comprehensive plan, legal aspects involved with zoning, ways to implement the comprehensive plan including zoning, increasing stakeholder involvement in the planning process, and best planning practices proven to move a community forward.
The registration deadline for the early bird fee of $60 per day is March 1 with a final deadline of March 7. Cost per day after March 1 is $75. Designated PlanFirst communities receive free registration as a benefit of their designation, and Regional Commission staff members may attend at a reduced rate.
