This training for local government officials will help communities perform land use planning functions in a knowledgeable, competent, and legal manner resulting in good and effective decisions. John and Walt have taught this class for other 10 years throughout Oregon helping hundreds of community leaders and staff ramp up their knowledge, actions, and service. Participants will learn:

  • History of planning in Oregon; develop a good understanding of planning including the role of the state and the role of local governments.
  • Fundamental principles of long-range and current planning; learn about the various elements of planning, why they exist, and how they relate to each other.
  • The Comprehensive Plan, zoning and subdivision ordinance, and how they work.
  • Types of planning applications; knowing a zone change from a variance.
  • How decisions are made; the role of the staff, planning commission, and elected officials; and just what is quasi-judicial anyway?
  • How decisions are made, what's important, what's not.
  • Applications; paperwork, process, protocol, and avoiding pandemonium
  • Procedures, decorum, and protocol for public hearings and working with citizens.
