This year’s conference theme is “Planning with Foresight.”  We will address the challenges associated with COVID recovery, social justice, climate action, inequities in affordable housing, and much more. Planning with foresight requires a proactive, rather than reactive, approach. We will explore what values, strategies, and tools planners can use to address resiliency, transportation, socioeconomic mobility, sustainable growth, and equitable access for marginalized communities.
