American Planning Association

Our Mission
The American Planning Association is an independent, not-for-profit educational organization that provides leadership in the development of vital communities by advocating excellence in community planning, promoting education and citizen empowerment, and providing the tools and support necessary to meet the challenges of growth and change.

Our Vision
We measure our success by the successes of our members and the communities they serve. Our vision is of a nation of vital communities, fully accessible to all people, with:

– comprehensive plans implemented to create healthy, safe places to live and work;
– social, economic, and racial equity and integration;
– good public services are provided;
– decisions based on sustainability at all levels;
– good jobs available close to home;
– a quality education available to all students;
– quality, affordable housing available to all people;
– choice in transportation modes;
– recreational and cultural opportunities;
– adequate protection from environmental hazards;
– natural resources protected or managed in a sustainable way;
– public officials and citizens who understand, support, and demand excellence in planning;
– citizens who actively participate in making the choices that determine their future.

This vision is the basis of our mission, goals, and strategies. It is what defines us as planners. And, most importantly, it is the measure by which we want to be judged — both individually and as an organization.
