Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Education Institute
More than 10,000 Pennsylvanians serve on 1,700 municipal and county planning commissions. Another 6,000-7,000 serve on zoning hearing boards or are involved in the day-to-day administration of some 1,600 municipal zoning ordinances.
These dedicated volunteers are the foundation of planning in the Commonwealth, but there are very few places where they can learn the planning skills and knowledge necessary for them to avoid potentially costly mistakes in their his role. Education is a key in preparing them to be leaders capable of effectively carrying out planning and land use regulations in their communities.
