How Are You Celebrating National Community Planning Month?

October is National Community Planning Month in the United States, and the American Planning Association (APA) has launched an informative webpage chock full of resources to help you celebrate this year's theme: People and Places.

"Each year APA, its members, chapters, divisions, and professional institute sponsor National Community Planning Month to raise the visibility of the important role of planners and planning in communities across the U.S."

"Help elevate the role of planning in your community. Host a planning department or planning commission open house, talk to kids in schools about a career in planning, present a library display about planning and planners, sponsor a neighborhood tour to highlight how planning helps the community."

If you happen to miss your chance to participate this month, don't worry, "World Town Planning Day is celebrated in 30 countries on four continents each November."
