May 3: Planning for Livable Communities

The PA Chapter and Temple University School of Environmental Design are pleased to announce Planning for Livable Communities: Incorporating an Aging Perspective. The one day planning institute will be held May 3, 2013 at the Temple Harrisburg campus. The institute will provide planners, policy makers and other stakeholders with the tools to incorporate an aging perspective in community planning, thereby creating livable communities that support people of all ages. Planners will learn to recognize impediments to the aging population and techniques to avoid and minimize these impediments. The event will address transportation, zoning, development standards, parks and recreation, accessibility, and planning ethics. AICP CM credits are pending approval. Over lunch attendees will be able to review the work of three Temple University Planning Studios that spent the 2013 spring semester focusing on community planning for aging in Lebanon and Montgomery counties.
