The Urban Design and Preservation Division strives to keep our members up to date on ideas impacting our built environment. We look forward to expanding our library to enrich our members' experiences.


Our webinar program delivers the quality of presentation that you'd expect from the National Conference free of charge to our members, and covers topics in design, preservation, ethics, and law.


The Division seeks to connect our members with resources that may be of interest or help, including linking to other groups that members may be interested in joining or interacting with.

The APA Divisions Council Initiatives address emerging issues and bring a focus to cross-cutting planning challenges from the diverse perspectives of twenty-one planning specialty and interest areas. These interest areas currently include the sharing economy, smart cities and sustainability, preparing for a more dynamic population, and aging and livable communities.
