Citizen Planner Program Training
PLANNING IS PARTNERING WITH MSU EXTENSION ON CITIZEN PLANNER TRAINING IN 2017:
Citizen Planner provides time-tested educational programs on important local issues that are proven to be
comprehensive without being overwhelming. The program is offered locally to provide a convenient way for
busy volunteer community leaders to obtain the latest technical knowledge and information they need to
perform their duties more effectively and responsibly.
Citizen Planner offers the Fundamentals of Planning and Zoning, a seven-session course leading to a
certificate of completion awarded by Michigan State University Extension. The course is intended for local
appointed and elected officials, zoning administrators and interested citizens.
Participants may also choose to continue on with the program and earn the Master Citizen Planner (MCP)
credential by completing the Fundamentals of Planning and Zoning, an examination and a capstone project.
Master Citizen Planners receive course discounts, exclusive training opportunities and other incentives.
