APA California Digital Cal Planner January February 2011

Happy New Year to all.

We are pleased to send you the Janaurary February 2011 issue of the California Planner. To view this document, you must have the most recent version of Adobe Reader. Click here to download Adobe Reader.

This issue contains a great article on redevelopment (certainly a hot topic in Sacramento) and some practical advice on foolproofing the land use planning process. If you want to know how the Chapter spends your dues, you will find the answer inside. Read more on the State conference in Santa Barbara. You will also have an opportunity to submit nominations for California Planning Pioneers and Planning Landmarks by reading the information provided by the Chapter Historians. The chapter’s first Historian Betty Croly passed away in December 2010 and she is remembered within this issue as clearly a planning pioneer who understood the importance of preserving the history of this profession and its organization for future generations. Any comments? Just email me at jmruggiero@sbcglobal.net.
