Course topics include the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (MPC) requirements governing subdivision and land development regulation, the importance of subdivision regulations to municipalities and to developers, procedures for reviewing applications, design considerations, requirements for approving and denying plans, project completion and follow-up, and new approaches to project design. Participants get hands-on experience reviewing plans and designing alternative solutions.
The course was developed by the Pennsylvania Planning Association and Penn State Extension Service through their training agency, the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Education Institute (PMPEI), and is taught by certified PMPEI instructors. It is limited to 25 participants, and preregistration is required. The registration fee is $110 ($90 for officials and staff from municipalities with current community planning assistance contracts).
