Planning Commission Events

  1. PMPEI Online Course: "Building a Strong Planning Commission"

    April 22, 2021, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Online Course

    A strong and well-organized planning commission is the key to a successful planning program. While Article II of the "Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code" (MPC) provides the authority to have a planning commission, it offers no guidance for how to be an effective unit serving the elected governing body and the community. Using hands-on activities and interactive discussions, this course will explore the full range of a planning commission’s work, how it can be organized to accomplish more of its goals, and what is needed to prepare members to get involved in the group’s work. This course is being offered as part of MCPC's Planning Smarter Montco 2021, a Montgomery County initiative offering planning education and outreach. We have worked with PMPEI to schedule Montco instructors/MCPC staff for one date of each of the 90-minute virtual courses being offered statewide through PMPEI’s online learning series in 2021. Registration and payment are being handled directly by PMPEI.
