Land Use Education and Events

Planning Maps

CLC sponsors education and training programs on land use topics for municipal officials, volunteer boards, and community groups. These sessions are designed to equip communities with the information and skills needed to review, revise, and apply land use regulations and practices.
These trainings offer a way for members of local planning boards to meet their requirements for training. Past topics have ranged from how to incorporate biodiversity in land use planning decisions to presentations on groundwater, stormwater management, and green infrastructure.
