Past attendees of the Land Use Academy remarked:

  • I am a complete beginner. There is absolutely no training on the local level—no one even tells you what to expect or what’s expected of you. These workshops are a godsend.
  • The hands-on learning was outstanding.
  • This was a very good presentation and I’m sure I will use much of the information presented.
  • I only wish that other members of our commission would have attended.
  • The instructor helped me a lot in understanding the topic.
  • I was reminded that there is so much to learn when you are a P&Z commissioner!
  • Superb…
  • Overall an excellent session; I have already put a couple of the principles I learned into action as a commissioner.
  • Being both an experienced Scouter and Engineer, I was very familiar with the subject [of map reading]. Nonetheless, even I, with all my so-called experience, learned quite a bit.
  • I have taken the workshop previously but still find [the instructor] and his material interesting.
