Duties of a Zoning Hearing Board - 3/25/21 - Allegheny County
From making decisions on contentious public issues to learning the ins and outs of the Municipalities Planning Code, being a member of a zoning hearing board can be a challenge. In this course, Elam Herr, retired PSATS’ assistant executive director and the chair of the East Hempfield Township (Lancaster) zoning hearing board, has a wealth of experience and will help you to better navigate this challenge. Topics to be covered include procedures for deciding variances and special exceptions, handling hearing-related questions, Ethics Act requirements and much more. Attendees will also learn specific, practical tips that will leave them better prepared for their next meeting or hearing. While this course is geared more toward newer zoning hearing board members, those looking for a refresher on their obligations will also benefit.
