Delaware County Course in Zoning. http://www.co.delaware.pa.us/planning/news/ZoningCourse.html

The Delaware County Planning Department is sponsoring the Course in Zoning during the evenings of September 22, 29, and October 6. This “nuts and bolts” course deals with the most complex and provocative topic in local planning.  It stresses the fundamentals for developing a sound zoning ordinance using the authority granted in the PA Municipalities Planning Code. The course includes mapping exercises, reviews of ordinance provisions, and discussions of problem situations.

Topics include:
· Relationship of zoning to comprehensive plans
· Key terms used in zoning and how they are applied
· Critical issues in drafting a zoning ordinance and map
· Procedures for adopting and amending ordinances
· Basic zoning administration

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.
