Thanks to everyone that came out to spend lunch with us at Brown’s Brew Pub in Troy to talk about development in the historic Collar City. We discussed historic rehab projects, new businesses, major development projects underway and what the future may hold for Troy’s landscape. Author/”Troy Tub thumper” Duncan Crary and developer/entrepreneur Jeffrey Pfeil share their perspectives on what’s happening in Troy, from its built environment to its cultural pulse and we’re very grateful. We had 19 non-CDPA/APA members attend, which is fantastic. We hope that those of you non-members that attended will consider joining CDPA/APA.
Have you taken the event survey? If you attended and haven’t yet responded to our survey please take a moment and check it out.
Our next event is fast approaching. CDPA is pleased to sponsor the American Planning Association’s April webinar, “Open Government and Engaging the Public.” The Capital District Regional Planning Commission will host the webinar at its offices off of Wolf Road in Colonie.
Technology is changing the way planning is conducted and open government is reshaping community engagement. Citizens now can access extensive information online and make use of government data, application processes, review procedures, and project commenting. Learn how this affects the planning commission’s role as the interface between government and the public. The program also will look at the developing concept of participatory budgeting.
Please, no walk-ins. Advance registration is required.
