  • APA NYM Tech Committee May Membership Meeting

    Friday, May 26, 2023
    7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

    We will be having our May Membership Meeting on Friday May 26th at 7pm.

    This will be a big meeting because we will be catching up on all the planning events (APA NPC23, etc) that have happened since our last meeting in March and outlining our summer program.

    In addition, we’ll be seeing having a special workshop to brainstorm how our committee can have a strong voice in how the APA New York Metro Chapter advocates for policies in the upcoming 2023-2024 APA Federal Policy Priorities. This is an important opportunity to advocate for the communities we serve, especially in the lens of how Tech can play a role in enabling the planning work we all do.

    A more detailed email will come out early next week to provide more details on meeting venue and reference materials.

    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.  

    F – Futuristic
    O – Opportunity, Open Space
    R – Resiliency
    E – Equity, Efficiency
    S – Social Justice, Safety/Vision Zero
    I – Inclusivity, Innovation, Infrastructure
    G – Gender Equality, Growth
    H – Housing, Historic Preservation
    T – Transit, Transportation, and Land Use
