In March 2018, CCAPA released Start with Planning, the chapter’s policy platform for 2018 and a signature building block for good planning through technical assistance, public awareness and collaboration. The policy platform pulls together critical insights from our membership as Connecticut navigates through a slow overall economic recovery and ongoing fiscal issues at many levels of government. These challenges have understandably dominated statewide conversation, often leaving little room to emphasize the incredibly powerful stories of ingenuity and innovation happening across Connecticut. We learned about these stories as part of the outreach for Start with Planning, which included small- and large-group conversations. This work is best summarized in a Spring, 2018 special edition of Connecticut Planning, our flagship publication, together with five technical policy papers in key topical sectors: economic development, transportation, housing, resilience and conservation. The session is organized in three main parts: a broad orientation on the policy platform; a discussion about initial feedback and functional use of the platform in large- and small-group meetings; and an interactive exercise/feedback loop on next steps for 2019.
