We are excited to once again welcome the knowledgeable staff from the NYS Department of State for two courses this spring, and hope you can join us for these important sessions.

Session 1: Planning Board Overview
, 4:00–6:00pm
This basic course addresses the powers and duties of town, village, and city planning boards and commissions. The administrative and regulatory roles of the planning board, including its review of site plans, special use permits, and subdivision plats are discussed, along with the planning board’s role in the municipal comprehensive plan. The importance of board procedures, referral to the county planning agency, and making findings are also covered.

Session 2: SEQRA Basics with New Regulations, 6:30–8:30pm
This introduction to the State Environmental Quality Review Act includes an overview of the environmental assessment form (EAF), Type I, Type II, and Unlisted actions and the sequence of making a positive or negative declaration on a project’s potential to have an adverse impact on the environment. The relationship between the administration of local regulations and SEQR will also be discussed, and the recent changes (effective January 1, 2019) to the SEQR regulations summarized.
