Community Planning

The Land Use Planning Community of Practice will hold a free webinar on Tuesday, May 12 from 3 to 4 p.m. EDT to provide an overview of the American Citizen Planner (ACP) program.

The webinar will be taught by Kara Salazar, AICP, PCED, LEED AP NC of Purdue University and Wayne Beyea, JD, AICP, of Michigan State University. The two have been instrumental in the creation of the ACP curriculum and making the program available nationally. Register for the webinar here.

The official launch of this program culminates a several-year effort by the Community of Practice to provide an easily accessible training for lay planning officials across the country. States also have the option of creating their own educational programs as part of this program by working with eXtension. Presently, Michigan has its own state version and Indiana has plans to launch their state version this year.
