Improving the Quality of American Cities and Regions
Improving American City Quality is the purpose of the American City Planning Directors’ Council (ACPDC) and the American City Quality Foundation (ACQF). They work to raise public awareness about the status and future of our cities and promote better quality city planning, decisions, design, development, management and action to improve cities and their regions.
American City Planning Directors’ Council
The American City Planners Directors’ Council (ACPDC) is a national council of the City Planning Directors from America’s largest central and other cities in the nation and in each state. City Planning Directors automatically become members when they are appointed to a City Planning Director position. Over 300 cities from all 50 states are included.
ACPDC’s primary purpose is to improve the quality of America’s cities. It does this through an information exchange program, meetings and supporting the American City Quality Month program every April. The purpose of the month long activities is to raise public awareness about the status and future of America’s cities and promote better city planning, decisions, design, development, management and action.
ACPDC’s presiding officers are the City Planning Directors from the same city as the National League of Cities’ President and the US Conference of Mayors President.
Activities of the ACPDC are supported in part by the American City Quality Foundation.
