Land Use Leadership Alliance Training Program

Short Course

The Land Use Law Center trainers are pleased to announce the Land Use Leadership Alliance Training Program Short Course. This course is designed for local leaders who have expressed an interest in attending the Land Use Leadership Alliance Training Program, but who have been unable to attend in the past.

The training program is structured to significantly benefit board members, citizen/advisory committee members, and planners, among other local leaders in developing and reinforcing their local land use decision-making skills and by providing them with strategic tools needed to address local land use issues of critical importance. The training program will also offer local officials and leaders a rare opportunity to discuss the land use issues they are facing in their communities with peers and experienced professionals.

Friday, June 15, 2012
This day will provide a basic introduction to the land use system, including the roles and procedures of the boards and an overview of collaborative decision-making. Trainers will use a hypothetical project for discussion purposes. In addition, trainers will discuss a variety of innovative land use techniques participants can use that both preserve natural resources and promote development in appropriate places.

The LULC are pleased to announce an upcoming Land Use Leadership Alliance (LULA) Training Program this spring supported by the Westchester Community Foundation. Conducted by the Land Use Law Center of Pace University, this program is intended for local leaders involved in the Northern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (NWEAC) and Southern Westchester Energy Action Consortium (SWEAC) who have a commitment to sustainable growth and land use and who are interested in learning how communities can respond to local and regional needs.

NWEAC and SWEAC’s mission is to collaborate effectively with its members to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, increase energy efficiency in communities, increase economic and sustainable development activity, and align local efforts with county, state, and federal initiatives. This LULA program will build upon the successful efforts of these organizations and focus on bringing land use and sustainable growth tools and techniques to interested individuals to assist them in the development of strategic plans for their community. It will help participants create new networks of support, identify successful sustainability techniques, and develop implementable local strategies.
