Announcing the Online Guide


The Board of Directors of the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association approved the conversion of its longstanding publication, A Guide to Urban Planning in Texas Communities, to an electronic journal format. Expansion of the Guide, a desire for flexibility in topic choice, and the ease of multi-party review and editing, and the rising publication costs made the switch an easy decision.

The Board approved the Editor's recommendation to place the 2008 Edition of the Guide online, as an initial reference point.  In the upcoming months, we will be reviewing and releasing a substantially revised edition, with new content and authors.

If you are interested in assisting the Editorial Board with the new edition, please contact the Editor, Kim Mickelson, at
