The NW Ohio Section of APA Ohio was the host section for the Statewide Planning Conference in 2015.

The urban areas that have for so many years been focused on commuting to and from via motorized transportation are undergoing generational changes and becoming more people focused as planners and community leaders are “Reclaiming Spaces – For People’s Sake”, which was the theme of the conference.

The conference sessions, mobile workshops, and professional development opportunities focused on this key theme. The conference provided a venue where the latest strategies and proven successes could be shared with others around the State of Ohio.

Rey Boezi, Marc Geremar, Sally Gladwell, and Paul Howenbeck spoke on planning for area-wide transformation.

The conference was held at the Grand Plaza Hotel.
