The 2017 Conference will offer a full schedule of more than 25 sessions organized into three tracks, in addition to mobile workshops and special programming:

  • Public Engagement.Participate in a planning charrette and pop-up demonstration, engage with the community in a planning conversation, and dig deep into how to communicate with the public and facilitate productive meetings.
  • Food Systems.Local food is no longer a fad and it interfaces with many aspects of community planning. Local food is a growing economic sector in rural and small towns across the region, it is a cornerstone of efforts to improve community health, and it is helping to maintain the working landscapes that are one of the defining features of northern New England.
  • New Technology.Crowd sourcing apps, electronic records, drones, green construction materials – new technology is changing how we do our work. Learn more about can planners use these new tools and materials effectively and creatively.
  • Mobile Workshops and Special Programming. We will be heading out into the streets, parking lots, fields and farms of Manchester to examine our three themes in the real world. Learn how Manchester is working to transform its downtown from an auto-oriented outlet retail center into a pedestrian- and bike-friendly four-season destination, explore new technologies and techniques in stormwater management, tour local farms and agritourism destinations, and more…
