National Community Planning Month

Planners work to improve the well-being of all people living in our communities by taking a comprehensive perspective. This approach leads to safer, resilient, more equitable, and more prosperous communities. We celebrate the role that planning plays in creating great communities each October with National Community Planning Month.

Planning is more important than ever as communities continue to navigate the disruptive changes brought about by the pandemic.
