Elected and Appointed Officials Workshop

Each year, the Midwest Section - Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association hosts a workshop for local Elected and Appointed Officials covering the basics of development regulations, the role officials play in the urban planning process and an overview of challenges and innovations facing planning and development departments within our communities. This year, the Section has put together a panel of speakers that will provide insight and moderate discussion among attendees concerning a variety of topics facing those who deal with the development process. Speaker topics will include:
  • Nuts and Bolts of Development Regulations (Zoning and Subdivision Ordinances)
  • Ethics (Roles and Responsibilities of Officials)
  • Legal Responsibilities
  • Revitalization of Commercial Corridors
The workshop includes a catered lunch, presentation materials and opportunities to meet officials from other communities to network and discuss challenges and opportunities in the development process.

A flyer with more details will be posted very soon.
