APA RI is one of 47 chapters and 20 divisions of the American Planning Association

We are a non-profit public interest and research organization dedicated to urban, suburban, regional and rural planning. With over 150 members, APA RI is made up of planners at all government levels, private consultants, local planning board members, landscape architects, environmental scientists, lawyers, engineers, professors, students and other professionals dedicated to sound planning principles.

Our Mission
Our mission statement is to "positively shape the planning profession by providing a forum for the understanding and application of sound planning principles within the State of Rhode Island and to provide leadership in the development of vital communities by advocating and recognizing excellence in community planning." We do this through advocacy, networking, outreach and professional development.
