Established in 2006, National Community Planning Month is celebrated each October as a way to highlight the role of planners and the importance of good planning in communities. Across the country, communities celebrate planning through a variety of avenues.
Planning can be summed up as comprehensive, community-focused choices that enhance the spaces where people live, work and play. While many people may not realize it, planning has a significant impact on their day-to-day life. From where they live, to how they commute, to the type of home they live in, planning plays a vital role in a person’s life and well-being. The 2020 theme is planning is essential for recovery. The theme highlights how planning and planners can lead communities to equitable, resilient, and long-lasting recovery from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
