Land Use Training

In-person Commissioner Training

SCCOG Commissioner Training Video Series

SCCOG frequently partners with the University of Connecticut Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) to provide free training to members of municipal land use commissions in southeastern Connecticut. Training sessions are typically held on weekday evenings and cover map and plan reading, or legal and procedural requirements. 

Upcoming Training

The land use training sessions previously scheduled for April 29 and May 13, 2020 were cancelled. An effort will be made to hold this two-part training at a late date.
