Massachusetts Planning Magazine

The Massachusetts Planning magazine is organized by a committee made up of Board members of APA-MA. Massachusetts Planning is issued four times a year. Each issue relies on news, articles and announcements content from planning professionals in the region. We hope you enjoy the magazine.

In our continuing efforts to improve the quality of Massachusetts Planning, we are always seeking magazine content (articles, announcements/events, etc.) written by our members that will be of interest to our readership. Every month there are great stories to tell about planning related issues going on in Massachusetts and Rhode Island—and great stories to tell.

If you are interested in submitting content, the limit for content is 1,000 words and we highly encourage graphics (ie, photos, maps, diagrams, etc.). Please send your entry to We will do our best to get your entry into the next issue of Massachusetts Planning.
