American Citizen Planner Program

Description:

The American Citizen Planner program is a basic land use planning program that trains citizen leaders to understand the many dimensions of both land use and natural resource management decisions, and to translate that knowledge into better growth and development of their communities. The program’s capacity to evolve as land use policies and regulations change, and to be customized based on local needs, ensures that volunteer community leaders who complete the program receive the technical information and tools they need to be successful.

American Citizen Planner features time-tested educational programs that help local officials and citizens understand and deal with important local issues like traffic congestion, farmland protection, healthy communities, water quality and quantity, urban design, and smart growth.
