Philadelphia, PA -- Councilman Bobby Henon announced that he will provide two scholarships for 6th District residents to participate in the Philadelphia City Planning Commission’s Citizens Planning Institute (CPI), which teaches Philadelphia residents how to participate in the community development process by teaching them about the Zoning Code and related planning processes.
“CPI is an opportunity for residents to get involved and learn about the role smart planning and implementation plays in building our neighborhoods,” said Councilman Henon. “It is a great educational and community-building tool. I’m proud to offer scholarships to residents of the 6th District to take part and shape the future of the Northeast through city planning.”
The scholarships are valued at $100 and includes the core courses and two electives. The scholarships will be awarded to 6th District residents who have been accepted into the program. Classes are Wednesday evenings from 6-9 p.m. (dinner is included).
