Adopting and Revising Rules and Regulations for Boards of Appeals & Planning Boards
November 17, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
FRCOG is pleased to partner with the Citizen Planner Training Collaborative to offer a workshop on “Adopting and Revising Rules and Regulations”
Boards of appeal and planning boards frequently choose to, or are required to, adopt rules and regulations governing process, procedure and even the substance of their application reviews. While such documents are an important source of authority for boards, they also make life easier for board members and applicants by providing a clear road map for a fair and predictable process. This session will clarify which types of zoning, non-zoning and subdivision rules and regulations are mandatory and which are voluntary; describe what they can and cannot cover; and explain how they get adopted and amended. The regulatory framework for establishing fees and using consultants will also be discussed.
