Lauren Trice, AICP, Chair

Welcome to the Urban Design & Preservation Division!

When I first joined the Division as a student, I found my home within the American Planning Association. The Division is where I found other professionals focused on how places develop over time, what is important to keep, and how to design for the future.

The Urban Design and Preservation Division is focused on past, present, and future of the built environment. The Division offers a place to explore, develop, and reflect on our profession.

I hope that you explore the wide range of resources available to our members including webinars, competitions, mentorships, case studies, conferences and more. We are led by volunteers and welcome new ideas and partnerships.


I hope that you join us and look forward to creating with you.


Lauren Trice, AICP
