Regional Livability Session at APA Conference

The American Planning Association’s (APA) Regional and Intergovernmental Planning Division will be sponsoring an afternoon meeting in Atlanta on Livable Communities Programs from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. on April 30, 2014, immediately following the conclusion of the National APA conference. The meeting will be led by Dan Reuter, Division Manager of Community Development for the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC). Since 1999, the ARC has been one of the U.S. DOT-designated Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) that has vigorously taken advantage of provisions of federal transportation laws to develop its Livable Communities Initiative Program.


The purpose of the April 30th afternoon meeting will be to discuss, share information, and set further program activities among regional planning agencies/MPOs that have either been active in the development of Livable Communities programs or are interested in becoming active participants. The meeting will build upon recent information-sharing activities of MPOs with active Livable Communities programs.


Attendance is free of charge, and the meeting is open. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. If you have questions, please contact Dan Reuter at:, Bob Leiter at:, or Lee Schoenecker at:
