The Montgomery County Planning Commission hosting will be hosting a number of planning training courses presented by the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Education Institute. These sessions will run from from April to June. Information on the upcoming April sessions is below.
Planning Smarter, an initiative of the Montgomery County Planning Commission (MCPC), provides important planning information that will enable local leaders and citizens to better plan for the future of their community. All Planning Smarter events are free and open to the general public unless otherwise noted. Event details will evolve as the year progresses and we continue to adhere to ongoing pandemic requirements. The 2021 series contains a hot topics event in June, which will focus on some of the effects of the pandemic and other topics that can result in significant community impacts. Given social distancing requirements, the three-session courses we annually sponsor from the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Education Institute (PMPEI) are not available. Instead, we have worked with PMPEI to schedule Montgomery County instructors/MCPC staff—who can provide local information—for one date of each of the 90-minute virtual courses being offered by PMPEI statewide in 2021. Each course is $25, and class space is limited. Registration and payment for the courses, as well as additional course dates and credit information, are available at www.training.boroughs.org. As usual, we will cap off the year with the Montgomery Awards celebration! For more information, contact Rita McKelvey or 610.278.3753.
