Urban and Regional Planning Faculty present at ACSP Annual Conference, Envision

Urban and Regional Planning faculty will participate at the 52nd Annual Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP) Conference, with the theme "Envision," at the University of Utah, October 13-16, 2011. Taubman College faculty will present papers and moderate sessions, such as "Planning Practice and Everyday Urbanism," "Accessibility: From Region to Neighborhood" and "Conservation Planning and Regulations." "Envision" reinforces the core mission of planning and encourages the application of assessments of the past and analyses of current conditions toward creatively and boldly envisioning better futures and moving forward to realize them.
