Blue Island Officials Receive Training by APA-IL

June 22, 2017

On June 19th, Michael Blue, FAICP of Teska Associates and Laurie Marston, FAICP of DePaul University's Chaddick Institute presented a Plan Commission Training Workshop in Blue Island, Illinois. The training was attended by members of the Blue Island Plan Commission, Historic Preservation Commission and the Deputy Director of Community Development. A few aldermen stopped by between their other meetings that evening.

 

 

"Good topic overview"

Most of the commissioners were recently appointed to the Plan Commission. They asked questions such as the best methods to engage citizens, how often the comprehensive plan and zoning ordinance should be revised or amended, and how to balance the reality of the market and the community's goals. 

 

"Thanks for personalizing for Blue Island."

The responses on the evaluation forms expressed appreciation for the use of concrete examples, personalizing the presentation for Blue Island, and having plenty of time for questions and discussion.

 

If you would like your community to participate in our training program, please contact Laurie Marston, FAICP at laurie.marston@comcast.net.
