Planning board and zoning board of appeals members are required by state statute to obtain four hours of training a year. Town, village and city zoning board of appeals and planning board members, as well as county planning board members must receive training.
CDRPC has historically organized two annual day-long workshops to provide this training. In light of NY PAUSE and the restrictions imposed in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, CDRPC has cancelled our Spring Workshop, an event that provided a full-day’s credits to board members. We recognize that Municipalities still need training outlets and have organized an ongoing and ongoing webinar series for participant to obtain credits. Municipalities have a wide latitude in defining what training is acceptable for credit.
