Citizen Planner Academy – Planning Basics

January 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Do you want to become more actively involved in making Orange County a sustainable community?


You can help make our community a more prosperous, livable, and healthy place for all our citizens and guests both now and in the future. Citizen Planner Academy is a series of classes designed to promote and increase citizen engagement in sustainable decision making by developing knowledge of the planning process, and to provide an introduction to various planning disciplines.

Have you ever wondered why apartment complexes are built in certain places?  Why did the liquor store open up down the street instead of a local supermarket? How do we determine where parks and schools should go?

Participants will learn about the Orange County land development process using role-playing exercises and Orange County’s Interactive Map.
