Event Details

Let's talk the about the future of transportation in the Capital Region!

Recent initiatives include the new “iride iwalk idrive” program a collaborative pilot program with CDTA offering affordable mobility options to the capital region.

Capital District Planners Association

CDPA is one of five sections of the Upstate New York Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA). The 30,000-member American Planning Association is the largest national organization working actively to promote both the planning profession and the practice of planning in our communities. APA brings together professional planners, citizen planners and officials, students and others interested in the use of planning to improve their community’s quality of life. Through the nearly 300-member strong CDPA section, we give members the opportunity to explore issues, share information and experiences, and to coalesce around a common identity.

The benefits of membership are many, including networking, technical presentations, professional development, and an opportunity to socialize with other area planners.
