Zoning Workshop - PA Municipal Planning Education Institute (PMPEI)

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

This course addresses the complex and contentious topic of zoning. It examines how zoning evolved in the United States and how this past history continues to shape the way zoning is practiced in 21st century Pennsylvania. The course begins with a review of the MPC authority for zoning and presents “nuts and bolts” fundamentals for drafting zoning ordinances and amendments. Included in the course are advanced techniques like overlay and performance zoning, planned residential development, and traditional neighborhood development. The relationship of zoning to comprehensive planning and the need for them to be consistent is emphasized. Mapping exercises, analyses of zoning ordinance provi-sions, problem situations and ethical dilemmas in zoning are discussed. The role of the planning commission in zoning administration, procedures for enacting zoning ordinances and guidelines for rezoning, are reviewed.
