2022 regional Planning Commissioner trainings

From the Institute for Local Government

“ILG and [its] partners are offering a series of regional planning commissioner trainings throughout [California]. The sessions [are] free of charge [and are designed] exclusively for city and county planning commissioners … both new and experienced.

“These interactive training sessions will help planning commissioners better understand the basics of planning documents, CEQA, and public engagement principles. [They] will also define the role of planning commissioners and give tips on how to work effectively with staff and the governing board. In each training session, [time is reserved] to network and discuss local planning challenges and opportunities, specific for each given region.

“[The trainings will give] participants the opportunity to engage with experts in the field and learn from fellow planning commissioners about best practices, emerging trends, and lessons learned.

“All sessions will run from 9:30 am to 4 pm, with coffee and networking beginning at 9 am.
