National Community Planning Month is Here

This month, we’re joining with our planning colleagues from across the country to celebrate the lasting value that thoughtful and innovative planning has on communities. This year’s theme is innovation in planning, underscoring the role of planning in addressing and adapting to the challenges facing communities in the 21st century.

Use the resources in APA’s Planning Month Resource HUB to share with your community, elected officials, and local media the positive impact planning has had on your community.

Have a planning success story you’d like APA to highlight during October? Send your stories and photos to us at
