Keeping Planning Responsive During COVID-19
Thanks to those who participated in the APA-MA/MAPD webinar “Keeping Planning Responsive During COVID-19” on Friday, March 27th. Special thanks to Barbara Huggins Carboni, Esq. and Jon Witten, Esq. from KP Law, who guided us through the Governor’s March 12th Emergency Order that made for temporary changes to the municipal planning landscape, including the Open Meeting Law, Public Records Law and Land Use Permitting.

APA-MA is organizing a group to focus on Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity. We are seeking members to participate in this initiative. The group will work on issues related to diversity, inclusion, and equity, including helping to plan events/activities and identifying strategies to help the chapter increase broader understanding and representation within our field.
