OAPA's Mission and Vision Relevant Resources, Better Planners, Exceptional Communities
OAPA promotes the art and science of planning in Oregon that fosters social equity, economic viability, and protection and regeneration of the natural environment, with emphasis on creating more resilient and adaptable people and places today and for a more sustainable future. OAPA and its members engage with Oregonians and other stakeholders about the value of planning and how it impacts our quality of life, and encourage people’s involvement in their communities. OAPA strives to provide resources and opportunities for professional planners because well-equipped, well-trained planning professionals translate into better outcomes for the communities we serve.
In addition, OAPA is committed to carrying out the Mission and Vision of the American Planning Association, which provides leadership in the development of vital communities by advocating excellence in community planning, promoting education and citizen empowerment, and providing the tools and support necessary to meet the challenges of growth and change.
