Student Report from Phoenix

PHOENIX,AZ - The Crescent City Shapers, the University of New Orleans’ student organization for planning and urban studies students, represented UNO and the state of Louisiana by traveling to the APA National Planning Conference in Phoenix. This year’s group was comprised of eleven Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) students, five of whom also traveled with the Shapers to Seattle for last year’s conference. Louisiana APA helps sponsor the Shapers’ trip annually to allow Louisiana’s future planners to experience the benefits of such an event.

Notes from Phoenix

Before we get back into our routines after attending the APA National Planning Conference held in Phoenix, Arizona, I want to share some thoughts.  We couldn’t have picked an environment more diametrically opposed to the location of our 2016 APA LA state chapter conference in Houma, LA.  Phoenix is in the heart of the western desert with mountains in the backdrop. Houma is in the heart of bayou country surrounded by water.  Phoenix averages 7 inches of rain per year, we average 60 inches! The air is so dry in Arizona that perspiration disappears before you even notice it.
