Welcome to APA Ohio

Our chapter of over 1,500 members is the oldest association of citizen and professional planners in the country.

In October 1919, a group of future-oriented civic-minded Clevelanders organized the first Ohio State Conference on City Planning. The Ohio Planning Conference, later merging with the American Planning Association, was the first organization of its kind and remains the oldest association of citizen and professional planners in the country. Our 1,500 members share passion and understanding of the value of planning in our communities. We are champions of the built environment and stewards of place.

Over the past one hundred years, the association and its members have changed and evolved but our mission remains the same – to promote good planning for the betterment of all Ohioans.
