APA PLAN RECOGNITION OPPORTUNITY

There is a great opportunity right now for your community to get recognition from the American Planning Association for its Comprehensive Plan. A pilot recognition and scoring program kicked off last week that will evaluate how plans incorporate sustainability principles and practices, and applications for plans to be considered this year are due on June 17. More information about the program can be found here on the APA website.

The first step is filling out a short application to join the pilot – viewable here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/K38VFPJ This application tells the committee about the context of your plan, and helps them get a range of plan types to work with during the pilot. If your plan is selected for the pilot, you will be asked to submit additional information about the plan later this summer to score/recognize it. I would be happy to answer questions from folks about the information needed for either step.

 Please consider submitting an initial application by Friday, June 17!
