About the Programs

Although membership is spread across the country, many planners confront the same problems on a daily basis. The Division endeavors to publish articles and case studies that celebrate and highlight the diversity of approaches used, and hopes the studies will come to be a resource for members, illuminating common issues in our field and sparking dialogue amongst practitioners.



Submissions, EDGE, Publishing Schedule

Articles: Members may submit articles related to urban design and/or historic preservation at any time they wish. Articles will be considered for publication to the library. Submittals will be approved or denied and the sender will be notified by email in either instance.


Case Studies: Case studies are distinguished from articles by the depth and breadth of exploration into a topic. The Division maintains a program to seek out studies that may be of heightened interest to members, though case studies may be submitted at any time for consideration of publication to the library.


EDGE: EDGE is the Division’s quarterly, and features a quick glance at the latest articles we’ve published, what we’re reading from around the web, upcoming events, and news related to Division affairs. Featured articles in EDGE are thematic and the themes for 2018 are as follows:

  • Spring: Fresh thinking, trends on the horizon, resilient places
  • Summer: The public realm, public health, and public rights
  • Autumn: How tech is influencing the design of your communities
  • Winter: Sustaining community through the winter months


Publishing Schedule For EDGE:

  • Spring: Articles due by early April
  • Summer: Articles due by early July
  • Autumn: Articles due by early October
  • Winter: Articles due by early February
