This week at APA
Six ways planning has changed in the 2010s

Shared cities and the rise of YIMBY — just two of the many transformations that have greatly impacted planning and communities this decade. As the 2010s come to an end, APA staff started a list of changes that have impacted our profession and our communities.

Now we want to hear from you! What would you include? Sound off on social media using #ADecadeOfPlanning so we can hear your most impactful moments, trends, and changes.
