Village of Winfield receives Plan Commissioner Training on 8/3/22

The Village of Winfield held an APA-IL Plan Commissioner training session on August 3, 2022. Members of the Plan & Zoning Commission, the Community Development Director, and the Village attorney attended the session. Lively discussion was held on such topics as interaction with residents when conducting site visits, properly handling conflicts of interest, and reviewing variation requests in Planned Unit Developments. Tom Farace, AICP, with the Village of Carol Stream, and Phil Green, with the Village of Hoffman Estates, led the training session, with additional support from Paula Freeze, Executive Director with APA-IL.

Many thanks to Winfield’s Peter Krumins, AICP, for arranging the training session.


Plan Commissioner Training available at the 2022 APA-IL State Conference!

We're excited to be back in Chicago, IL at the Old Post Office, September 28-30, 2022 for our 2022 State Conference. This conference is our once-a-year opportunity for urban planners and allied professionals to learn about the latest trends in Illinois planning and network with their peers.

The Conference is also an opportunity for plan commissioners to attend an all-day training. This year's all-day Plan Commissioner Training will be held on September 29th. This training is great for commissioners that have and have not been through our evening training. The training is split into a morning of general information, a networking lunch with fellow commissioners and trainers, an afternoon mock hearing to put your knowledge to the test, followed by an evening cocktail hour.
