From autonomous vehicles to zoning, Cuba to the Chinese countryside, Planning covered a lot of ground this year. Look back at 2017's most popular issues and features, as judged by our online readers — and the people who put it all together.
One highlight of 2017 was the revitalization of the APA Foundation. Our sincerest thanks to everyone who donated. At the state level, California had the most individual donors to the Foundation and Pennsylvania raised the most funds. Again, thank you to all!
A highlight of this project are four case studies, three of which will be released in January 2018. The first is the "IndyWalkWays: More Than a Pedestrian Plan," Indianapolis/Marion County's first pedestrian plan.
Career Reality Webinars
APA's Career Services department hosts no-cost, members-only Career Reality Webinars, which offer practical tips on job search and professional development issues for both new and seasoned planners.
Since the planning profession has gotten wider and planners are working in more diverse fields than ever, it may come as no surprise that this year's most popular webinar was "Careers in Planning Beyond Planning."
Thanks to everyone who followed along with us as we navigated the world of planning throughout this past year. Stay tuned for a more detailed look back at APA in 2017 in our Annual Report, to be released in early 2018.
