Community Planning Institute (CM | TBD)
April 20, 2017 - April 21, 2017
COMMUNITY PLANNING INSTITUTE, APRIL 20-21, AT UNICOI STATE PARK
The Community Planning Institute (CPI) is a 2-day workshop presented by the Department of Community Affairs and the GA Planning Association, designed for and about local governments. Its purpose is to assist with upcoming, and on-going, comprehensive planning activities. The next CPI class, “Preparing and Implementing your Comprehensive Plan,” is currently accepting registrations for its April 20-21 class at Unicoi State Park and Lodge. The Community Planning Institute has been approved by Georgia Planning Association for AICP CM Credits.
This class provides local government planners, elected officials, staff and planning commissioners the opportunity to learn about the rules for comprehensive planning in Georgia. It also provides best practices and notable examples of plan implementation techniques and activities that have proven successful. This class will (1) teach working planners and others about the comprehensive planning program in Georgia- what the law requires and how to prepare a plan under the Rules set forth by the State, and (2) provide real-life examples and best practices of how to utilize and implement a comprehensive plan once it is adopted by a community. Many GPA members are involved with both the preparation of the local comprehensive plan and its implementation.
