We are nearly 2,000 city-oriented planners and managers. We are a group of people who believe in strong and vibrant cities. We believe that we not only CAN make cities better, but we have a RESPONSIBILITY to.

We want to gain the best tools and learn the best techniques. We want to share experiences and good ideas. We want to learn from each other how to design and implement plans to ensure a brighter future for our residents, our businesses, and our property owners

We know that our work matters. Practical is better than theoretical. We have big issues to resolve. They include equity, climate change, displacement, aging infrastructure, food and home instability, health access and the changing business environment. And we face these issues with ever-shrinking budgets.

Our jobs are complex. They require finesse, determination, and quick wits. This Division serves as a support and resource center for all. This is a place to learn, to teach and to give back to a profession that feeds not just our bellies but our souls.
