UConn CLEAR has decided to take the Land Use Academy Basic Training on the road to make it easier for land use commissioners to attend. Using this new format has proved to be very successful with the training being sponsored by both Councils of Governments and individual towns.
If you would be interested in holding a Basic Training in your region or would like more information, please contact Bruce Hyde at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 860-345-5229.
October TBD - Advanced Training - In response to feedback from both professional planners and land use commissioners, we are offering an all-day advanced training covering three topics in-depth: Bias, Predisposition and Conflicts Implementing and Enforcing Land Use Decisions Running a Meeting and Making the Decision.
The Land Use Academy is a part of the Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) within the University of Connecticut College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The Academy collaborates with other CLEAR programs on various projects in an effort to create the most useful tools and resources for municipal officials.
