The ideas expressed in The High Cost of Free Parking, published by Planners Press in 2005, continue to gain support and invite commentary. In a recent article in The New York Times, economics professor Tyler Cowen expanded on author Donald Shoup's analysis of the true cost of parking.

Welcome to APA Interact
Water conservation kicks off conference series
Sign up for APA's "Designing for Water Conservation" audio/web conference on September 29 to learn how to use hydrology and knowledge of local groundwater resources to protect the environment and private investment. Learn how to incorporate regulations to control runoff, minimize water usage, and use water most effectively. CM | 1.5
The deadline for savings on the 2010–11 series of audio/web conferences is fast approaching! Register by September 14 to take advantage of early-bird discounts. Keep up with best practices and stretch your training dollar with group instruction. CM 
Moving America Forward
Light rail
At the next Tuesdays at APA on September 21, Kathleen Woodruff from Transportation for America will discuss authorization of the next six-year federal surface transportation bill: a historic opportunity to transform our transportation system to make it more modern and accountable. Join your colleagues at this free after-work event at the Daniel Burnham Conference Center in APA's new Chicago office. CM | 1.0
Symposium on planning for sustainability
APA's Sustaining Places Initiative is a multi-year, multi-faceted program to define the role of planning and the comprehensive plan in addressing human settlement issues related to sustainability. This year's AICP symposium will explore both the role and the key elements of the comprehensive plan in helping communities of all sizes achieve sustainability. Space is limited, so sign up now for the October 27 event at the National Building Museum in Washington. CM | 2.5
Get PTS training on water, suburbs, hazards, and zoning
Plan now to attend Planners Training Service workshops in Chicago, November 10–13. This fall's series includes advanced sessions on watershed planning, retrofitting suburbia, hazard mitigation, and sustainable zoning. Registration opens soon; watch the APA website and APA Interact for details. CM |14.0 (each workshop) "Sustainable Zoning and Development Controls" meets the law requirement.
Apply for student internship funds
APA's Small Town and Rural Planning Division is accepting applications through September 30 for its Spring 2011 internship program.
Students: Present at APA's conference
Poster session
Thousands of planners, officials, and professionals in allied fields will come together at APA's 2011 National Planning Conference in Boston. One of them could be your next employer. Make an impression by presenting your work — research, case study, or planning project — in the student poster exhibition at the conference. Submit a poster proposal by October 12 and plan now to attend the conference in April. (If you can't make the October deadline, watch for another chance to submit in January.)
Meet your next big client in Boston
Planning Expo
APA's National Planning Conference is a great opportunity to introduce your firm or product to an engaged and motivated audience. Sign up to exhibit at the 2011 conference in Boston to make valuable face-to-face contact with potential clients and strengthen your relationships with existing clients. Space is limited and sells out quickly. Reserve your spot in Boston today.
Ask about green infrastructure
The September issue of Zoning Practice examines the environmental, economic, and social benefits of green alternatives to "gray infrastructure," and describes how integrating planning, policy, and regulation can promote green infrastructure locally. Authors David Rouse, AICP, and Mami Hara, AICP, are online through September 30 to answer your questions.
Zoning Buffers: Solution or Panacea?
The potential for conflict between adjacent land uses has been a planning concern since the advent of zoning. This month's historic PAS report, published in 1960, offers a thoughtful discussion of use buffers and landscape buffers, two common tools used to mitigate potential land-use incompatibilities. The author cautions planners to beware of carelessly written ordinances that don't get the job done. How do your community's buffer requirements stack up?
Fiscal Impact Analysis
Fiscal Impact Analysis
A well-prepared fiscal impact analysis can help a community of any size understand the pros and cons of a proposed development and enable well-informed decision making. But too many communities either do not undertake FIAs or lack the expertise to do so most effectively. This new report, written by the leading national practitioner of fiscal impact analyses and published by APA, gives planners a complete understanding of why FIAs are so important and how they can better design and execute them in their communities.
Becoming an Urban Planner
Have you been asked for advice on how to start a career in the planning profession? Get tips on how to respond from veteran planners Michael Bayer, AICP; Nancy Frank, AICP; and Jason Valerius, AICP, who discussed their book Becoming an Urban Planner: A Guide to Careers in Planning and Urban Design in an interview taped during APA's 2010 National Planning Conference in New Orleans. Watch the interview, and read an excerpt of the book online.
