The Divisions Council met during the last weekend in September at APA's Fall Leadership Meeting in Washington D.C. It was a lively and productive session, and a discussion about the formation of a new Division began, following a formal proposal made to the Council. We'd like to solicit your input on the subject, as a Division member.

The Council is asking for comments and opinions from Division members on the formation of a new division of APA, which would be based on New Urbanism. What are your thoughts on such a division? Is it necessary to serve the interests of APA's members? Is New Urbanism too narrow a focus? Would it overlap with the existing Urban Design and Preservation Division, or the City Planning & Management Division?

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. These online discussions will be archived and used to help the Divisions Council and the APA Board in their considerations on suggesting revisions to the proposal, and making a final decision.

If you'd like to be assigned a login for this forum, please reply to this message with your full name and APA member ID number.
(mailto:mwelch(at)planning.org) The forum is open to all division members and APA's volunteer leaders, but not to the general public.

Sincerely,
Mike Welch
