NORTHERN NEWS is written by you, for you.

Entirely the effort of volunteers, Northern News is published 10 times each year for city and regional planners and associated professionals living or working in California.

  • A focus on what is happening (or can affect your work) in Northern California.
  • Your original high­resolution photos.
  • Original articles written by you and your colleagues.
  • News about fellow planners.
  • Norcal roundup, California, U.S., and World — a digest of planning­related news from sources you might not normally visit — all with links to the parent article, should you wish to read more.

APA California Northern publishes Northern News 10 times each year for the exchange of planning ideas and information. Current and back issues are available for viewing or download here. Approximate circulation (downloads per issue) is 2,000.
