AICP Fall Symposium

AICP Fall Symposium


Are the principles of Smart Growth that helped to create more vital and prosperous cities now being questioned?

As America's communities face new challenges, what is the best strategy for planners to use to promote livable urban communities?

Do people still feel safe living, working, and recreating in central cities and communities after September 11th?

How can the Smart Growth movement respond to September 11th to help promote urban communities and central cities?

The events of September 11th have created many challenges for people living in America's cities. Among them: fear, rising costs surrounding safety and anti-terrorism measures, and heightened awareness of the built infrastructure that is crucial to the vitality of any city. To address these emerging issues that planners now face, the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) has dedicated the 2001 Fall Symposium to address
these challenges, to promote the Smart Growth agenda and to reinforce the importance of central cities and communities.

The Symposium will feature federal government officials, research scholars, and academics, as well as leading professionals within the planning field. Panel discussions regarding the continued vitality of cities will help planners respond to the challenges that America's cities now face. More importantly, understanding the range of responses presented by our speakers will help planners explain to their communities that "Smart Growth Still Makes Sense".

AICP Fall Symposium: Wednesday, Nov. 14th, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill.
