MSU Extension's Zoning Administrator Certificate Program
Monday, March 01, 2021, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EDT
Category: Other Events

Do you have new or redevelopment occurring in your community? Development is good, but what if the decisions you’re making relative to development are putting your community at legal risk? One recent court judgement cost a small Michigan community $800,000.  So much of the legal risk associated with zoning administration comes from the process of accepting development proposals and processing those projects. Do you insist project applications are complete before accepting them? Do you have a set of checklists and other forms for ensuring conformance with your ordinance? How experienced are you with site plan review? What about inspections?

Join MSU Extension and other zoning administrators from around Michigan at the Zoning Administrator Certificate Program. Learn how to improve your development review process, while minimizing legal risk, and building a broader network of peers and other professionals to support your work.

 The 2021 ZAC Program will follow a hybrid model of live webinars plus self-paced online learning using MSU's learning management system - Desire 2 Learn (D2L). The program will begin February 1 and run for five weeks.  Cost $395.  Registration is open: https://events.anr.msu.edu/ZAC2021
