Planning board and zoning board of appeals members make decisions of major importance to their communities and to all New Yorkers. These decisions can affect the function and appearance of communities for decades to come while impacting property interests important to individual New Yorkers. For this reason the State of New York requires all Planning Board members and members of the local Board of Zoning Appeals to undergo four hours of training each year.
The Cayuga County Department of Planning and Economic Development provides several opportunities throughout the year to help those on local planning boards and ZBAs to meet this training requirement. In addition, there are many training opportunities available in neighboring counties and on-line.
