2023 SPRING CONFERENCE Highlights from the 2023 Conference AND Thank You to Our Sponsors
Maine Association of Planners (MAP) Spring 2023 Conference
On June 2, MAP held its Spring Conference at the University ofMaine, Augusta, with over 50 individuals attending.
The featured speaker, Fatuma Hussein, founder and Executive Director of the Immigrant Resource Center of Maine, kicked off the day with a keynote urging planners to involve immigrant communities in decision making processes because they have the capacity, education, and systems in place to support us.
Following the keynote, the roundtable discussion focused on the unique issues surrounding immigrants and asylum seekers and how local communities are working to adapt to their needs. We had two additional panels on land use and zoning issues around manufactured housing and approaches to housing unsheltered communities.
The annual awards, legislative updates, and a walking tour of downtown Augusta rounded out the day.
