Summary Sentence: Student group hosts World Town Planning Day event

Full Summary: The Georgia Tech Student Planning Association is proud to announce its annual World Town Planning Day event, which will feature a presentation by Dr. Jack Crowley (UGA School of Environmental Design) entitled "Green Neighborhoods on Streets of Steel."

The Student Planning Association is pleased to have Dr. Jack Crowley of the UGA School of Environmental Design as the featured guest for its annual World Town Planning Day event. Dr. Crowley will be giving a presentation entitled "Green Neighborhoods on Streets of Steel," which will explore issues associated with developing sustainable transportation infrastructure in an economically viable way.

Dr. Crowley is well known for his founding of the UGA College of Environment and Design, which brings together the disciplines of landscape architecture, historic preservation, and ecology. He originally joined the University of Georgia's Landscape Architecture program in 1975 and served a four year term as an assistant professor. After working in Oklahoma in the fields of planning and real estate, he returned to UGA in 1996, where he served as the Dean of the College of Environmental Design from 1996 to 2006 and where he is currently a Professor in the School of Environmental Design.

World Town Planning Day (WTPD) was created in 1949 by Professor Carlos Maria della Paolera of the University of Buenos Aires as a way to advance public and professional interest in planning. It is now celebrated in over 30 countries and successfully draws attention to planning issues on local, regional, and global scales. The celebration of WTPD follows the American Planning Association's National Community Planning Month, which occurs throughout October.

This event is co-sponsored by the Georgia Planning Association and is open to the public. Light hors d'oeurves and refreshments will be served following Dr. Crowley's presentation.
