Local Host


The Continuing City: People, Planning, & the Long Road to Urban Resurgence

A note from the local host committee chair, Dan Hess, University at Buffalo:

Join us next year in Buffalo for The Continuing City: People, Planning, and the Long-Haul to Urban Resurgence. Explore stories of long-term planning and action and questions about equity on topics including economic development, waterfront redevelopment, parks planning, education, employment, transportation. Faculty and students from UB, as well as community leaders from across Buffalo, will share lessons learned from Buffalo’s dogged, continually evolving and in some cases disputed “comeback,” while inviting the exchange of stories of city-making, and remaking, across all urban scales.

Here's a sneak peak into Buffalo!

The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning promotes education, research, service and outreach in the United States and throughout the world by seeking to:

  • recognize diverse needs and interests in planning;
  • improve and enhance the accreditation process, and;
  • strengthen the role of planning education in colleges and universities through publications, conferences, and community engagement;
  • extend planning beyond the classroom into the world of practice.
