In our Winter issue, we'll be running an article with tips on how to get new planning commissioners up to speed so they can more effectively participate on the commission. As editor of the Planning Comm'rs Journal, I'd welcome hearing from Cyburbians.

-- Do you have a "game plan" for dealing with new planning board members?
-- Does your commission's Chair play any role?
-- Do you have or use any training programs?
-- Anything else you do (or avoid doing)?

Thanks for taking the time to reply.
