National Community Planning Month

header2016.jpg

October is designated as National Community Planning Month by the American Planning Association (APA) as a way to highlight the role of planners and planning in each community. The Tulsa City Council and Mayor Dewey F. Bartlett, Jr. signed proclamations designating October as Community Planning Month in Tulsa. The month-long celebration is an opportunity to recognize how planning shapes a community. This year's theme, Healthy Communities, Healthy People, focuses on the tie between a healthy community and the physical and mental health of people.
To celebrate planning in our community, the City of Tulsa's Planning and Development Department has partnered with Tulsa Foundation for Architecture, Tulsa Young Professionals, and Guthrie Green to offer the following FREE activities for all ages:
Healthy Tulsa Scavenger Hunt- Take the challenge to see if you can find 10 healthy places in Tulsa. Clues are provided.  Share a picture to prove you were there!
This is Tulsa Through Many Eyes- Submit photos of your favorite places in Tulsa that celebrate our healthy community and healthy people throughout October. In November, all photos will be compiled in a video and shared on the City's website.
Build a City- On October 14, join us at Guthrie Green from 11am-2pm during Food Truck Wednesday to "Build a City," an interactive game to create a city out of boxes.
Jane Jacobs Walk- Discover Downtown through the eyes of Jane Jacobs, an urban activist and author of "The Death and Life of Great American Cities." Led by Tulsa Foundation for Architecture, the walking tour will depart at 10am Saturday, October 17 from the Topeca at the Mayo Hotel.

October is designated as National Community Planning Month by the American Planning Association (APA) as a way to highlight the role of planners and planning in each community. To celebrate planning in our community, the City of Tulsa's Planning and Development Department has activities centered around this year's theme, "Civic Engagement". This year's theme acknowledges that thoughtful local planning cannot happen without meaningful engagement with the public, elected officials and key leaders in our community.

We will have FREE activities that were developed in partnership with Guthrie Green, Tulsa Foundation for Architecture, and Tulsa Young Professionals: (Event Flyer)
