APA-Wisconsin's First Annual Planner's Day at the Capitol

We had a very positive and productive Planner’s Day at the Capitol on Tuesday, with 14 planners meeting with more than 20 different legislators to advocate for strong and equitable communities.  Given the number and scope of changes to planning and zoning statutes over the past few years, the legislators that I met with seemed to enjoy a candid and often technical discussion of how these changes are implemented on the ground.  As planners, our voice has been missing for far too long.  Thank you to all of the Planner’s Day attendees for your advocacy and professionalism.
