Indiana Chapter - American Planning Association

Planning Officials Development

As part of the Chapter’s efforts to further planning education in Indiana and ensure vitality for Indiana communities, the Planning Officials Development Committee (POD Committee) strives to serve as a resource to citizen planners and planning officials throughout the state.

The POD Committee is currently working on the following initiatives:

  • Release of an updated Citizen Planner Manual
  • Establishing a statewide network of resources to support plan commissions, boards of zoning appeal, and other elected and appointed bodies related to planning
  • Increased outreach and communication with planning officials throughout the state

As we work toward these goals, please feel free to contact Jason Saavedra, Planning Officials Development Officer, at or 812-645-4610 with any questions or ideas.
