ABOUT US

This site is for the Houston section of the Texas Chapter in the American Planning Association (APA).  Houston APA is a nonprofit, professional organization for urban planners in the south east Texas region.  A newsletter is sent out each month highlighting important section updates, upcoming events, programs, and educational opportunities. These newsletters are archived below for your convenience.

The need for planners to shape a community vision has never been greater. The American Planning Association (APA) brings together thousands of people – practicing planners, citizens, elected officials – committed to making great communities happen. APA is a nonprofit public interest and research organization committed to urban, suburban, regional, and rural planning. APA and its professional institute, the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), advance the art and science of planning to meet the needs of people and society.
