Audio/Web Training Workshop on October 8

September 24, 2008

[FERNDALE] – “Renewable Local Energy” is an American Planning Association audio/web training workshop for professional planners and members of planning and zoning boards.  The workshop will be held on Wednesday, October 8 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. at the CVIBuilding in Ferndale, NY.  The seminar is sponsored by Sullivan Renaissance and the Sullivan County Division of Planning and Environmental Management.


Today’s emerging energy crisis means that many communities and individuals are increasing the amount of energy that is produced locally.  This workshop will explore which plans and codes enable and encourage infrastructure for renewable energy such as wind and solar power.  Experienced presenters discuss stumbling blocks including neighborhood opposition and aesthetic concerns.  Find out what role neighborhood-scale utilities can play in improving community sustainability.


Professional planners can earn 1.5 AICP Certification Maintenance (CM) credits.  Planning and zoning board members in New YorkState will receive a certificate of completion for continuing education credit.


Here’s how an audio/web workshop works.  Held in a classroom, participants listen to a discussion via the telephone and view a PowerPoint on a large screen TV.  A few days beforehand, individuals are given access to a special conference website with supplemental reading materials.  All attendees will have access to the website for three months after the program.


Pre-registration is required.  The workshop fee is $15 per person.  For more information, directions and to register, contact Helen Budrock at 845-295-2462.


Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Additional funding has been secured by NYS Senator John J. Bonacic and Assemblywoman Aileen M. Gunther.
