Notes on the 2022-2023 Ethics Case of the Year
This year's "case of the year" is a series of ethical scenarios based on real-life planning issues from the past year. It was developed by the AICP Ethics Committee, with the assistance of former AICP Ethics Officer James Peters, FAICP. The five ethics topics discussed are: misrepresentation of public review, conflict of interest, equity and inclusion, planning competence, and planner/real estate agent.
