WRC Presents "Basics of Town Planning" Training

The Windham Regional Commission is offering an on-line Basics of Town Planning training. This is a great opportunity to learn about the Town Planning purpose and mechanisms. 

When: Wednesday, June 3rd 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Where: Zoom virtual meeting

Who: Town Planning Commission, Development Review Board, Zoning Board of Adjustment, Selectboard members, town staff, and Windham Regional Commissioners, as well as anyone else who would like to know more about town land use planning and regulation.

Purpose: The intent of this training is to provide information about:

  • the purposes and mechanisms of town planning;
  • the roles of different town boards and commissions in the development and implementation of town plans and land use regulations;
  • the statutory processes involved in developing, adopting, or amending town plans; and
  • the statutory processes involved in developing, adopting, or amending land use regulations (zoning bylaws or flood hazard area regulations).

It is intended to serve as an introduction to those who are relatively new to town planning and as a refresher for those with more experience. We also hope that this and subsequent training sessions will serve as opportunities for participants to get to know their peers throughout the region. We will be asking participants what topics they would like us to address in future trainings. Town planning interest and urgency may experience an increase in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
