Designed for new and seasoned planning commissioners alike, the conference provides city officials with information about the roles and responsibilities of a planning commissioner, offers a basic legal and practical framework, and helps foster relationships with fellow planning commissioners.
At the conference, you will network with other Planning Commissioners as you learn in one place about
- Senate Bill 9
- Relationship-building with councils and staff
- The streamlined housing laws
- How to prepare findings and conditions of approval
- Wildfire planning
- New and pending legislation
