UConn CLEAR has decided to take the Land Use Academy Basic Training on the road to make it easier for land use commissioners to attend. Using this new format has proved to be very successful with the training being sponsored by both Councils of Governments and individual towns.

If you would be interested in holding a Basic Training in your region or would like more information, please contact Bruce Hyde at bruce.hyde@uconn.edu or call 860-345-5229.
