Training Officials on Planning Statutes and Policies

Strong communities need officials who understand how to comply with existing statutes and policies, and know how to implement the current best practices in planning. MSU Extension sponsors individual workshops on Michigan laws such as the Open Meetings Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Joint Planning Act of 2004, the Zoning Enabling Act of 2006, the Planning Enabling Act of 2008 and the Right to Farm Act.
