Illinois Planners Forum

Welcome to the APA-IL Forum, facilitated by Yahoo! Groups. When planners have questions about planning matters who do they ask? Normally they'd knock on the wall of the cubicle next to you have the opportunity to ask 1,400 of your closest planning friends.


By signing up with the Forum, you can ask any professional questions to forum members, follow discussions between members, and answer questions posted by fellow professionals. Recent topics have included Building Permit Reviews, Community Gardens, Apartment Parking, Traffic Controls, Municipal Boundaries...


We hope that this is a convenient way to request and exchange information, and a means to establish communications with other Illinois planners!
