National Community Planning Month
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
