Citizens Planning College: Historic Preservation Accepting Applications

The City of Camden is proud to present Citizens Planning College, a program that will teach the “ins and outs” of city planning in Camden. Each class in the program is devoted to topics taught by the Planning Staff and/or a special guest speaker that specializes in the area of study. The purpose of the College is to provide an opportunity for residents to learn the basics of planning, how planning is conducted in Camden and why planning is important to the city. The goal of this unique outreach program is to encourage a more informed debate about planning and how it influences growth and development in the city. Topic areas include, but are not limited to, comprehensive planning, zoning, transportation planning, and floodplain management.

As a continuation of Citizens Planning College, the City of Camden is pleased to announce the 2nd annual Citizens Planning College: Historic Preservation. This course will last four weeks and will provide an introduction to the concept of historic preservation and how it is applied at the national, state and local level. Classes will include a discussion of the new Camden Design Guidelines and how they are applied by staff and the Historic Landmarks Commission.
