Planning Commission Member Becomes A Virginia Certified Planning Commissioner

TOWN OF ABINGDON, VIRGINIA

Planning Commission Member Becomes A Virginia Certified Planning Commissioner

ABINGDON, VA-- Janice Rice Reeves, a member of the Town of Abingdon's Planning Commission, recently completed the necessary coursework to become a Virginia Certified Planning Commissioner (CPC).  The CPC program provides Planning Commissioners with the necessary legal and technical background to make informed land use decisions.  The program has been nationally recognized for its ability to provide exceptional training to citizen-planners.

The program is held in various locations across the Commonwealth and includes several days of coursework followed by intensive home-study, exams, and required readings.  The ever-changing legislation which regulates the operation of planning programs makes such training invaluable to local commissioners.  The Town of Abingdon has made a conscious commitment to provide this educational opportunity to its Planning Commissioners, Town Council, and staff members.   

For further information, please contact Matthew Johnson, Director of Planning at 276-492-2125 or mjohnson@abingdon-va.gov.
