    2019 CCOG U
    Centralina Council of Governments TRAINING
    THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

    As a continuation of the CONNECT Our Future mission, CCOG U continues to provide learning opportunities for the region's planners, businesses, educators, non-profits, and others to learn about topics that help us continue to support our region's communities, improve quality of life, and help us remain competitive in a global market vying for residents, jobs, and businesses.


    Beginning again in February, Centralina COG will host a series of six (6) training sessions to cover a few of the 'hottest' planning topics in the greater Charlotte region that align with one or more of the 10 CONNECT Our Future priorities.


    We invite you to sign-up for individual sessions at a cost of $30 per session or register for all six and receive a discount ($30).

    Each session will begin at 11:30am with lunch and networking, with the official program starting at 11:45am. Session lengths vary, but offer between 1.25 to 1.5 AICP CM credits.

    The increase in drone ownership has led to questions about privacy and safety as those drones have buzzed commercial planes, peered over neighbor's hedges and into windows with mini-video cameras. The counterbalance to drones is their usefulness in commercial and government uses such as mapping, observing, and investigating risky situations. But this usefulness also brings its own challenges and issues. At this session, participants will learn about some of the legal issues of drones and how local governments can proceed.

    Bike and scooter sharing programs are being used in local communities to enhance individual mobility, provide first and last mile connectivity to transit, provide access to parks and recreation, downtowns, and other destinations, but are they right for your community? From bike share, to dockless bike and scooter programs, what should your community know before you embrace these new services.

    Unknowingly, local governments may be creating barriers to affordable housing options in their communities. Whether it's an onerous process or an adopted policy, by identifying and addressing unintended obstacles local governments can at least be sure they're not part of the housing problem.

    Every resident is affected by the planning process be it a big or small plan, a land use or transportation plan. However, many residents and communities have historically not been heard. Today the challenge is to go beyond simply giving equal access to the process and instead to seek out those whose voices have gone unheard in the past.
