Philadelphia’s Citizen’s Planning Institute offers training sessions on the city’s new zoning code

The Citizens Planning Institute has announced a Spring-Summer 2012 Training Series on the New Philadelphia Zoning Code, co-sponsored by the Department of Licenses & Inspections, Philadelphia City Planning Commission, Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, and the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

The training series provides an opportunity to learn the new zoning code side-by-side with City zoning administrators and with fellow real estate, zoning law, planning, design, and community development experts.

The Training Series consists of two core classes and three optional electives. Participants must complete the two-class core before taking any of the electives. Five sets of core sessions will run from April 24 to May 29. Three sets of electives will run from
June 5 to June 29. Each class will run from 8:00am-Noon (breakfast will be included) and be held at one of two locations.

Space is limited, therefore registration is on a first come, first served basis. The 2 Core Classes are offered at one fee: $160
Each Elective Class is $45.
