National Community Planning Month:
Because Great Places Require Great Planning!
October is National Community Planning Month, a time to recognize the vitally important work done by MoVal's professional Planning staff.

Every important City project involves Planning staff, from new roads, open spaces and housing, to small stores and massive commercial and industrial developments. They each need the guiding hand of a planner to help them transform from general concept to specific, detailed reality -- because "Great Places Require Great Planning!"
