The Long Range Planning Division welcomes the opportunity to share our knowledge of planning with others. Whether the topic is on general planning, or specific topics such as water resource protection or designated growth areas, the Long Range Planning Division will present such topics to all grade levels. Just a reminder, October is National Community Planning Month, Planning Great Communities Month, and Local Government Month.
Teachers, are you interested in linking your lesson
to real-life community situations?
We might be able to help!
The staff at the YCPC will give a presentation that can tie your class work directly to the community in which we live. There is a wide variety of subjects to discuss.
Planning Lessons Around York County
The many facets of Community Planning are things that touch the lives of just about everyone, but few that know about it. Our goal at the YCPC is to educate and encourage people to become active participants in shaping their community.
Our planners introduce planning concepts using a slide show, maps and hand-outs and activities. Topics for discussion can include, but are not limited to, zoning, conservation, land use, transportation, water and local government. The presenters are flexible and can help tailor a presentation to fit your needs.
Presentations can inform attendees that they ALL can play a role in making York County a safe and health place to live, play and work!
Community Planning is a topic which affects people every day, however; most are not familiar with it. As members of the community, we experience traffic, see new development, utilize public sewer and water services, enjoy the parks and observe neighborhood change. These are all topics the YCPC works with on a daily basis.
Contact YCPC staff, Lindsay Gerner or Anne Walko, to see how we can reinforce the topics you are teaching and introduce the students to community involvement and a possible career path in their futures!
