The Institute for Local Government is hosting a series of regional planning commissioner trainings throughout the state in 2022 and 2023. These sessions are offered free of charge exclusively for city and county planning commissioners and designed to benefit both new and seasoned professionals.

The interactive training sessions help planning commissioners better understand:

  • Role of a planning commission
  • How to work effectively with staff and the governing board
  • Effective community engagement
  • CEQA basics
  • Required planning documents
  • Local planning challenges and opportunities

In each training session, we reserve time to network and discuss local planning challenges and opportunities, specific for each given region. These trainings are designed to 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 9:30am to 4:00pm, with coffee and networking beginning at 9:00am. Must be a current planning commissioner or planning commission staff and pre-registered to attend.

Planning Commissioners who miss their county’s training may attend a future session in a different county. Local Government agency staff not currently on a Planning Commission may attend these sessions if space allows. Priority is given first to Planning Commissioners and Planning Commission staff.

Please send an email to pctrainings@ca-ilg.org with any questions you may have.
