A Mobile Workshop for Everyone

(adapted from a 2016 poem by Erin Cigliano, AICP)

We got feet, kayaks, buses, and more. People spots, farms, and strolls through Naperville’s core. History, preservation, and innovation are on tap. Learning about building, growing, and community will be a snap. So whether it’s a walk, paddle, ride or stroll… Prepare to warm up those joints and get ready to roll.

That’s right folks… it’s here! Check out the setlist of Mobile Workshops being planned as part of this year’s APA-IL Conference in Naperville.
