Citizen Planning School Learning Sessions – The Basics


The Citizen Planning School program provides citizens of Erie and Niagara counties with tools to increase the sustainability of their communities and ultimately, the Buffalo Niagara region at large. All participants attend issue-based lectures, have access to online toolkits, receive a Certificate of Completion, and attend the Idea Summit that celebrates the work of all program participants. Participation in the Citizen Planning School is free and open to the public.
