UPDATE: We’ve just learned that we’re approved to offer this training for American Planning Association Continuing Education Credits. If you are or know a planner who is looking for CEU’s this year, let them know about this!
Join us for the second part of our training series where we’ll be discussing Site Planning and Development. Thanks to a generous grant from BB&T, there is no cost to attend this workshop for members; Non-members is only $40. The information will be invaluable to organizations and staff members who work on transforming properties. Parking is available in the empty lot across from the entrance on Fisk St. We’ll see you there!
