and that web site will always have the most recent workshop and training information. The web site includes a “Contact Us” link for questions. The fee for the conference is only $30 (includes continental breakfast and lunch) while the training day fee is only $15. Registration is now open.

The 2012 Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) Connecticut Land Use Academy is now available. Included below is the listing of upcoming sessions:
Advanced Training Academy
CLEAR’s Advanced Training Academy held on November 5 was a huge success. As a result, we have added another Advanced Training Academy for March 31, 2012. The Academy will be held on the University of Connecticut Stamford Campus.
The Advanced Land Use Academy training
is a departure from the Basic Training
that we usually offer. In response to feedback from both professional planners and land use commissioners, we are offering an all-day advanced course
that will cover three topics in-depth. This training will include plenty of time for audience participation, questions, observations, etc.
