APA Regional and Intergovernmental Division to Hold Livable Communities Events

Posted on: April 1st, 2014 by Carrie Kissel

The Regional and Intergovernmental Division of the American Planning Association (APA) will hold two sessions that may be of interest to regional planning and development organizations.  One panel on “Regional Livable Communities” will be held during APA’s National Planning Conference (http://planning NULL.org/conference/) (April 26 – 30 in Atlanta, GA), and will feature presentations from regions across the country with longstanding sustainable communities programs.  The panel will occur April 29.

On April 30, 1:15 – 4:15 p.m., the division will hold another event on “Livable Communities Programs” free of charge at the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce facility.  The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss, share information, and set further program activities among regional planning agencies and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) that have been active in the development of livable communities programs or are interested in becoming active in these programs.  The relationship of transportation to economic development and implementation of federal surface transportation law to implement livable communities goals will also be part of the dialogue.

Although there is no fee to attend on April 30, an RSVP is required.  Please contact Dan Reuter, Land Use Division Director of the Atlanta Regional Commission at [email protected] (dreuter null@null atlantaregional NULL.com), or Lee Schoenecker, past chair of the APA Regional and Intergovernmental Division at [email protected] (leeschoenecker null@null aol NULL.com).
