APA Cleveland serves Northeast Ohio’s planning community, hosting social and educational events throughout the year and bringing members and the community together to discuss issues affecting our region.
APA Cleveland is governed by a 12-member executive committee, which includes a student representative of CSU’s planning program. Counties served by APA Cleveland, many of which are also in the service area of the Akron Section, are Cuyahoga, Ashtabula, Erie, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Mahoning, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, and Trumbull.
Everyone contributes to places that matter. We Plan CLE is an annual event, open to all, designed to foster discussion and innovation.
A week-long series of events focuses on a different theme each year to encourage collaboration, discussion and great ideas. We invite you to join the conversation!
