Shaping Our Future
Continuing Education Workshop 
Preferred Development Patterns, Who Chooses?
Thursday, January 11th 


The workshop will focus on the varying factors that influence development patterns, and highlight one important tool local jurisdictions have at their disposal to manage growth and future land use – the Comprehensive Plan. The workshop will provide opportunities to discuss the entire planning process, from community engagement, to setting actionable goals and clear implementation strategies, to sharing progress towards achieving plan goals with the broader community following plan adoption.
