Community Planning Workshop

“The purpose of this AICP workshop will be unlike many of the past. We will review, but not reinvent, the vision and plans that have been already forged. We are the fresh eyes asked to see the barriers to plan implementation and answer the question, ‘Why have these plans not been implemented?’” – Gary Cornell, FAICP

The workshop will take place on Saturday, April 26th as part of the American Planning Association’s National Planning Conference being held in Atlanta.
