Jobs, Resilience, Recovery On Agenda For Lincoln Institute At APA In Chicago

American Planning Association to host thousands at National Planning Conference April 13-17

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Jobs and economic development, recovering from the housing bust, and planning resilient infrastructure are among the issues on the agenda for the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy at the  American Planning Association National Planning Conference in Chicago April 13-17.

The Lincoln Institute is a conference sponsor of the APA's annual gathering, which typically draws some 6,000 planners, elected officials, and policymakers. 

The delegation is led by Gregory K. Ingram, president of the Lincoln Institute and an economist with expertise in housing and infrastructure, along with Armando Carbonell, senior fellow and chairman of the Department of Planning and Urban Form, fellow Peter Pollock, instrumental in convening city planners from around the Chicago region and across the country, and visiting fellow Daphne Kenyon, who will discuss her work on economic development and tax policy, including tax breaks for business location.

In addition to the panels featuring Lincoln Institute experts and partners, a meet-the-author and book-signing event with coffee and dessert is planned for Monday, April 15 at the Lincoln Institute's booth at the APA Expo to celebrate the publication of Made for Walking: Density and Neighborhood Form, by Julie Campoli. The book is a street-level guide to the critical elements of walkable neighborhoods, as successor to the popular volume Visualizing Density, which like all of the Lincoln Institute's publications will be available for purchase at the conference.

Two other special events are also planned:

No Small Plans: The Chicago Infrastructure Trust ( Tuesday, April 16), hosted by The Next City in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Foundation and the law firm Mayer Brown, examining the groundbreaking public-private partnership and its impact on the national conversation about economic development and financing infrastructure, with Lois Scott, City of Chicago; MarySue Barrett, Metropolitan Planning Council; Rita Athas, World Business Chicago; and Roy Kienitz, Roy Kienitz LLC.

Large Landscape Conservation in Metropolitan America ( Saturday, April 13), hosted by the Metropolitan Greenspaces Alliance and the Practitioners' Network for Large Landscape Conservation, an initiative supported by the Lincoln Institute and partners the University of Montana Center for Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and the Sonoran Institute, an all-day workshop on how the strategic approach of large landscape conservation can be applied to key issues for metropolitan regions including water, energy, land use, transportation, open space, recreation, and urban growth.
