Our most recent conference took place on November 5-8, 2015, in Los Angeles, California. As part of this event, SACRPH announced the winners of the 2015 prize competition and welcomed several new board members.
We will next convene in Cleveland, Ohio, in fall 2017!
The Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) was founded in 1986. The organization promotes scholarship on the planning of cities and metropolitan regions over time, and bridges the gap between the study of cities and the practice of urban planning.
We welcome you to read Past-President Joseph Heathcott’s annual appeal letter to members.
