City Council proclaims October Planning Month

At last night’s city council meeting, Brighton City Council passed a resolution proclaiming October as Planning Month. National Community Planning Month is a municipality’s chance to raise the visibility of planning, the planning profession, and to highlight the positive impact it has on the community. 


Established in 2006, National Community Planning Month is celebrated each October as a way to highlight the role of planners and the importance of good planning in our communities. Each year, a theme is identified to help a community highlight an aspect or outcome of planning. This year, the theme is innovation in planning. 


Planning plays an important role in addressing and adapting to the challenges faced by communities in the 21st century. From using data sources and technology to address issues including inequality, access to transportation and social mobility to celebrating new approaches to creating communities of lasting value.  


While many people may not realize it, planning has a significant impact on their day-to-day life. From where they live, to how they commute, to the type of home they live in, planning plays a vital role in a person’s life and well-being.


Planners work with professionals from different fields such as public health, recreation and engineering to make communities safer, stronger, and healthier. Planning does not stop at a geographic border.  Communities are served best when planners take a broader viewpoint, encompassing regional and statewide perspectives.
