The Midwest Section’s Elected and Appointed Officials Workshop is back! This annual training opportunity for Planning & Zoning Commissioners, Zoning Board of Adjustment members, and other elected and appointed officials will be held as a standalone event Friday, July 28th at the Grand Hall at NRH Centre from 10am to 3pm.
Training will cover planning and zoning basics, development review, planning law, and ethics. An interactive development design review session will also demonstrate some key elements of plats, site plans and zoning changes for decision makers to look for when reviewing agenda items. The event is designed primarily as an introduction to planning and zoning for newer officials, but can also serve as a refresher course for more seasoned officials.
