Latinos in planning, planning in Latino communities

Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University

What are the most important planning issues facing Latino communities? What are the biggest challenges facing Latino planners? Come share your thoughts and help to build an agenda for Latinos in Planning.

Planning professionals around the United States are working to create a new Latinos in Planning division within the American Planning Association. We are working to build national and local agendas to influence the work of policymakers, planners and researchers in issues related to planning in Hispanic communities.
