The American Planning Association California Chapter Collection documents the administrative activities of the national organization's California Chapter, as well as the history of planning in California in the 20th and early 21st centuries. APA California is a network of practicing planners, citizens, and elected officials committed to urban, suburban, regional and rural planning in the State of California. APACA offers information, services and support to advance planning in California. Administrative files, planning publications and reports, and newsletters documents the planning movement in California, California planning's ties to design and the environment, and planning related legislation.
The national American Planning Association formed through a merger between the American Institute of Planners (AIP) and the American Society of Planning Officials (ASPO) in 1978. Both organizations experienced rapid growth in membership in the post-World War II period. The AIP orignated in 1917 as the American City Planning Institute and was renamed AIP in the 1930s. The ASPO was established in 1934 to conduct research and to promote planning.
