Sen. Singer Bill that Would Allow Online Training for Zoning Board Members Clears Committee

Members of planning boards and zoning boards of adjustment may soon be able to complete their required training online thanks to legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer and approved today by the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee.

“It’s time to bring the training process for members of planning and zoning boards into the digital age,” said Singer (R-30). “This legislation will allow board members to become better trained without requiring them to take time out of their busy work day or weekend. This will benefit taxpayers, improve efficiency, and reduce hands-on effort from municipal employees.”

Singer’s bill, S-2957, requires the Commissioner of Community Affairs to ensure that the training course for members of planning boards and zoning boards of adjustment, who are currently required to attend such training classes, are delivered in both online and in-person formats.

“Technology has changed the way the world does business, and the state must adapt and progress,” Singer added.
