Duties of a Planning Commission - 9/21/23 - Westmoreland County

In this class, you will learn the integral role that the planning commission plays in the short- and long-term development of the township and the quality of life of its residents. We will cover how much authority planning commissions have (and do not have) under the Municipalities Planning code and township ordinances, the development of comprehensive plans, the interplay between planning commissions and township staffs and boards, compliance with the Sunshine Act, and much more. We will also discuss best practices for the internal management of your planning commission.

Eligible for 2.5 PMGA Planning/Zoning points.
