CPTC Fall Workshops Begin October 28th!

CPTC is offering 13 e-workshops for Fall 2020. E-Workshops are designed for citizen and professional planners in Massachusetts. The workshops cover subjects such as zoning, housing, design review, 40B, special permits and more. Each workshop is led by an Massachusetts expert in the subject area. The fee is $20.00 per workshop.

The workshops are sponsored by individual regional planning agencies. You can attend any workshop. Some workshops offer credit toward CPTC Certificate, MIIA credit..

This is a perfect opportunity for members of planning boards, boards of appeals and municipal staff to increase their knowledge of Massachusetts land use law and regulations.

The series starts off with Roles & Responsibilities of Planning and Zoning Boards on Wednesday, October 28th. This is an excellent introduction to the subject for newer board members and is offered on 2 other dates if you can’t make this one.

Registration closes 72 hours before the workshop begins or when the webinar’s capacity is reached. View the E-Workshop selection and register now to be sure you get your selection.
