Iowa City Attends Growing Sustainable Communities and Upper Midwest APA Conferences


HBK attended and sponsored the 10th Annual Growing Sustainable Communities Conference and the Upper Midwest APA Conference. Upper Midwest APA Conference, the Iowa Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA-IA) has partnered with Growing Systainable Communities (GSC) to hold their respective conferences consecutively at the same venue to allow potential registrants to attend both conferences. Both conferences focused on educational opportunity for public- and private-sector leaders who have a common interest in sustainability, resource management and social equity. HBK’s Iowa¬†employees attended different workshops throughout the two days which featured presenters from across the continent who delivered new research, case studies and the latest best practices to help attendees plan and implement projects and programs related to economic prosperity, ecologic integrity, social vibrancy, equity and resilience.
