Feb. 28: Comment on APA Policy Guides

Stand up for Planning

APA Policy Guide Comment Period Begins

APA members can comment on draft policy guides on equity, housing, and surface transportation. The draft guides, which were created by APA members and approved by APA’s Legislative and Policy Committee, represent the collective thinking of association members nationwide on key planning issues. Developed for policymakers, APA policy guides propose policy recommendations that aim to create just, healthy, and prosperous communities that expand opportunity for all.

APA policy guides also inform our annual policy agenda and set the course for our advocacy work on federal, state, and local issues.
