The Westchester Municipal Planning Federation (WMPF) is a voluntary association of officials representing the county’s 45 municipal governments, zoning and planning boards and land use consultants including lawyers, engineers, architects and planners. Authorized under New York’s State General Municipal Law in 1962, and governed by a 15-member Board of Directors, the organization’s purpose is to “create an effective and permanent countywide organization for the exchange of information on matters of planning interest.”
WMPF works closely with the Westchester County Department of Planning to arrange programs of interest to the Westchester planning community. These programs include an annual land use training institute, annual planning and zoning board seminars, and a variety of breakfast, luncheon and evening programs on topical planning issues. In addition, WMPF hosts an annual planning achievement awards dinner and offers a scholarship to an undergraduate or graduate student seeking a degree in planning or a closely-related field, such as landscape architecture, architecture and public administration.
