2013 APA Ohio Chapter Planning Conference

APA Ohio Chapter
Cleveland, OH

Planning in the New Normal.

Events over the last few years highlight the difficulty in predicting the future. Planners, as in many professions, need to respond quickly to economic and political shifts and their resulting physical land use impacts, and are often faced with more challenges than resources. Our previous ways of thinking have changed significantly. This three-day conference will focus on moving forward - "Planning in the New Normal."

The APA Ohio state-wide Planning Conference attracts planning professionals, elected officials, planning commission and zoning board members, zoning inspectors, attorneys, developers, real estate professionals and construction-related industry representatives. This year’s conference is designed to showcase innovative tools, techniques, projects, plans, research and other initiatives that are transferable to communities throughout Ohio.
