The Newly Elected Officials Course, or NEOC, offers a comprehensive overview of the duties of municipal officials, taught by experts in their fields. More than 1,000 individuals have attended the Newly Elected Officials Course in over 30 years.
“Complete Streets” is the simple idea that our streets and sidewalks should be accessible to all residents, regardless of their age or how they get around. Communities benefit when they pass Complete Streets policies — discover how.
This interactive virtual course brings to you the understanding of the powers and duties of local elected and nonelected officials as set out by state and federal statutes and regulations.
Discover how communities benefit when they pass Complete Streets policies and explore how a transportation policy designed for all users can improve the health, public safety and economic viability of your community.
This one-of-a-kind course is unique in Pennsylvania for its scope and content. More than 1,000 individuals have attended the Newly Elected Officials Course in its more than 30 years of existence.
Design plans were approved and construction has begun on the new “Net Zero” municipal building. Join us with the Sustainable Community Development Network for this free webinar.
The priorities of a community’s accessibility to transportation have a lasting impact on development and integration. Take transportation in your community to the next level.
