Our Division Urban Design and Preservation
The Urban Design and Preservation Division has a track record of providing outstanding CM webinars, engaging in-person events, and informative original content for those interested in the past and future of our built environment.
We promote the importance of design excellence, an equitable public realm, and stewardship of our historic places throughout the planning profession and beyond.
This year, we're partnering with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the American Institute of Architects Regional and Urban Design Committee on joint programs that explore the intersection of planning, design, and preservation. We provide on-the-ground technical assistance to help communities plan for their futures through our Design-Preservation Rapid Assistance Teams (D-PRAT).
Our members also support the development of emerging urban design and preservation professionals through the co-sponsorship of the APA Student Planning and Design Competition and our Division scholars program.
Whether you're just entering the profession, a planner interested in design and preservation issues, or a seasoned urban designer or preservation planner, we would love to have you join our community. Please consider joining one of our Division committees!
