National Community Planning Month
This month, we’re joining with our planning colleagues from across the country to celebrate who planners are and the lasting value thoughtful planning has on communities of all sizes. This year’s theme is civic engagement, underscoring the necessity of engaging the public, elected officials, and key leaders in discussions that shape the future of our cities.
Throughout the month, the American Planning Association will highlight stories of:
- Kids engaging in planning for the first time;
- Planners lending their expertise to communities in need; and
- Planners working alongside professionals of varying disciplines to build healthier, more active neighborhoods.
