Master Planner: Subdivision and Land Development Review
October 17 @ 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM$155
The work of planning commissions in the subdivision and land development review process, from pre-application meetings through project completion, is the focus of this course. The course is also useful for those in the development sector, and other professionals such as engineers, surveyors, and realtors. It is organized into three major sections: 1) the principles of subdivision and land development regulation and ordinance requirements, focusing on key provisions of the MPC; 2) subdivision and land development review procedures, and; 3) design and technical standards of subdivision development. Participants get hands-on experience reviewing plans and designing alternative solutions. Topics in the course include the MPC requirements governing subdivision and land development regulation; the importance of subdivision regulations to municipalities and to developers; a three-stage procedure for reviewing applications; requirements for approving and denying plans; project completion and follow-up; design considerations; density and open space criteria; and new approaches to better project design.
