For Agendas and Handouts for Forums please see Box Regional Planning Forums folders listed below for each regional location.
The Washington State Department of Commerce, the Planning Association of Washington and the Washington Chapter of the American Planning Association collaboratively present the Regional Planners’ Forums.
A Planners’ Forum offers a unique opportunity – at no charge – for planners, planning commissioners, elected officials, and community members to talk informally about local issues, to share ideas, and to receive updates from state and federal agencies whose work may impact land use. The Planners’ Forums also satisfy requirements for credentialed planners toward professional development through advanced-level presentations provided by professionals on an array of timely and relevant planning subjects. Registration is not necessary for this daytime training.
