The Course in Community Planning will be taught in three consecutive Thursday sessions—April 12, 19, 26, 2018—in the Towamenicn Township Building Meeting Hall. The course, which MCPC sponsors through PMPEI, is designed for both new and experienced participants and covers the fundamental information that municipal officials and planning commission members need to carry out their responsibilities and do an effective job. It addresses the role of planning in local government and how planning commissions relate to the governing body, zoning hearing board, and zoning officer. Specific topics include basic knowledge of the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (MPC), comprehensive planning, plan implementation including zoning, subdivision, and land development regulation, official mapping, and how effective planning commissions approach their responsibilities. The course is limited to 25 participants and pre-registration is required.
