Planners Training Service Two-Day Workshop
Site-Plan Review: Process, Standards, and Guidelines
Seattle • June 13–14, 2013
Advanced Training for Practicing Planners
Every new development starts out as an idea on the drawing board. Smooth the path from plan to reality with help from this hands-on workshop.
An architect and a landscape architect have teamed up to present the latest thinking from the field. They'll go over the site-review process, from applications to appeals, and share the pros and cons of different approaches. Then in group exercises, you'll conduct a mock review board to practice what you've learned.
Come to Seattle and take home the tools you need to foster better development in your community.
You'll learn about:
- Elements of site-plan review
- Key steps and decision points
- Legal aspects of the process
- Public notices and meetings
- Application considerations
- Appeals and enforcement
- Design standards and guidelines
This agenda is subject to change. Workshop registrants will receive the final agenda after registration closes.
