[Metropolitan Planning Department of Marion County Training Program, Staff and Officials.]
Metropolitan Planning Dept. of Marion County, Indianapolis, IN.
This training program for officials and staff of the Metropolitan Planning Department of Marion County, Indiana, is initiated as an integral part of the comprehensive continuing planning program for the Indianapolis-Marion County metropolitan area. Training for the two groups consists of two separate but integrated activities. For the officials, emphasis will be on subjects relevant to urban growth and basic planning concepts, principles, and policies. For the planning staff, emphasis will be on the technical aspects of urban planning (transportation, zoning, land use, housing, and others) treated at considerable depth. Formal courses or lectures, preferably once a month in the evening, taught by professors and a variety of other experts and supplemented by films, filmstrips, and slides on urban development and community planning in North America, will be used. Orientation to governmental organization in Marion County and the operation of the Metropolitan Planning Department will be given to new staff. Accordingly, training for officials and for staff should be conducted at separate times and with somewhat different approaches. (author/ly)
