2012 CIP/APPI Conference:
THE GREAT EXCHANGE
Putting Ideas Into Action
October 9–12, 2012
As professional planners, we are well educated in the theories and principles of sustainability and what goes into creating great places. In many cases we've incorporated these theories and principles of sustainability and good urban design into our community plans. Yet, despite all the talk about transforming our communities into models of planning excellence, we often lack the practical solutions necessary to implement change on the ground. The aim of the 2012 CIP/APPI Conference is to showcase the tools used to get the job done.
