The North Central Section hosted its 4th Annual, Focus North Texas Planning Symposium on January 24th, which sold out. The Executive Board is extremely appreciative of the City of Garland for their continued generosity and use of the Curtis Culwell Center again this year. Each Symposium, the Section strives to create a one-day agenda that meets professional development needs as well as business development needs by providing a wide variety of planning related topics. We assembled speakers from all around the North Texas region – from the private and public sectors – to discuss topics such as strategies for redevelopment, sustainability and climate change, regulating sex businesses, transit oriented development, and community engagement.
