Intro to Planning and Zoning Workshops
Introduction to Planning and Zoning Workshops
The Introduction to Planning and Zoning Workshops for Local Officials is a three-hour workshop designed to introduce the basic principles of land use planning and development management to elected officials, planning and zoning officials, and board of adjustment members without formal training in the subjects. Using case scenarios in a highly-interactive format, the workshop highlights issues frequently faced in the land use process.
The workshop is offered annually in seven or eight locations across the state. Locations change from year-to-year so that city and county officials are able to attend a location near them at least once every two years. All workshops begin with registration and a light supper at 5:30 p.m. The program begins at 6:00 p.m. and concludes by 8:45 p.m. The registration fee is $60 per individual. This fee is reduced to $50 per individual if a city or county registers 5 or more officials to attend. The fee covers the workshop instruction, workshop materials, and supper.
The tentative locations for Spring 2014 are Burlington, Carroll, Cedar Rapids, Decorah, Mason City, Okoboji, Red Oak, and Sioux City. Return to this page in January 2014 for exact dates and locations.
