The Last Green Valley will host a full day of free workshops for municipal officials on Feb. 9.

The workshops are part of the organization’s Sustainable Communities Program and will focus on the basic roles, responsibilities and tools that municipal volunteers need to succeed in their positions. Most communities rely heavily on volunteer commissions, committees and boards, with frequent turnover in membership.

The workshops will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Northeastern Connecticut Council of Governments, 125 Putnam Pike, Dayville. They will cover legal requirements in land-use decision making; roles and responsibilities of land-use commissions; map reading; and low-impact development. The snow date is Feb. 16.

The workshops will be taught by faculty from UConn’s Land Use Academy. Preregistration is required. A light breakfast will be served.

To register, visit clear.uconn.edu/lua/basic/schedule.htm or contact Lois Bruinooge at (860) 774-3300 or at lois@tlgv.org.
