The Introduction to Planning and Zoning for Local Officials workshop is a three-hour session 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 multiple 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 $65 per individual.  This fee is reduced to $55 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 workshop has been pre-approved by the Iowa Municipal Finance Officers Association and the Iowa League of Cities for credits toward certification.
