The Delaware County Planning Department is sponsoring the Course in Subdivision and Land Development during the evenings of April 27, May 4 and 11. This course deals with the work of planning commissions in the subdivision and land development review process- from pre application meetings through project completion. Extensively revised in 2005, the course emphasizes the MPC as the source of authority to regulate development. Planning commissions have a central role play in the land development process which is an integral part of a community’s comprehensive planning program. New in the course are flexible design concepts and options for better project design.
Topics covered in the course include:
· Administering the review process
· Reviewing Plans
· Calculating impacts of development
The Course was developed by the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Education Institute (PMPEI) to provide a unique educational service to municipal officials through the collaborative effort of the PA Chapter of APA and the PA State Association of Boroughs.
This course is intended for planning commissioners, zoning officials, elected officials, and others interested or involved in zoning.
