The call for proposals is an opportunity to share best practices, innovative approaches, as well as research and information with California planning commissioners and planners at their annual gathering.
This three-day conference includes general sessions, workshops, and networking, offers a fundamentals track for new commissioners, and an emerging issues track on topics for more seasoned professionals. For 2019, planners would like sessions to focus on topics that include homelessness solutions, housing, community engagement and leadership in challenging times.
The last conference, held in April 2018, featured a wide range of sessions on a wide variety of topics including city finance, CEQA, general plans, planning acronyms, infill, design guidelines, and more. For more information, or to get a copy of last year’s program, please contact Caitlin Cole
