Evening Training

Evening Training

In 2015, STC determined there was a need for ongoing monthly training – in the evening – for Governments and Organizations throughout the region.  The first series of classes was based on training participants in the process of a DIY comprehensive plan.  Class selections for subsequent years have focused on increasing the basic operational knowledge for local organizations by training local government officials, municipal staff, community volunteers, and non-profit participants. 

A few classes are repeated every year:

  • ARC grants & Grant writing 
  • 4 hour Intro to Planning and Zoning
  • SEQR training
  • NYS FOIL / Open Meetings Law

Other classes are added in response to local issues:

  • Handling Heated Meetings
  • Property Maintenance, Code Enforcement, & Mobile Homes
  • Planning in Water’s Way (planning for development in flood prone communities)

STC is accepting suggestions for classes
