A very engaging Plan Commissioner Training was held in the Village of Forest Park on November 8, 2023. Commissioners and consultants attended the session, and discussion was held on commission responsibilities during public hearings, standards for conditional uses and variations, and potential conflicts of interest.

The training session was presented by Emily Egan, AICP, with the Village of Brookfield, and Valerie Berstene, AICP, with MKSK.

Many thanks to Roya Nassirpour with MUSE Community + Design for organizing the session.
