Planning is facing a growing national backlash. In the Bay Area, conservative activists strongly opposed Plan Bay Area, and the last few years have seen proposed legislation to block sustainability planning introduced in half of the states in the U.S. What is driving this phenomenon? Come learn more about these trends and their implications for the field of planning. Co-sponsored by the Northern Section of the APA California Chapter. AICP CM credits pending.​
