Pizza with Planners

Pizza with Planners: A Citizen's Guide to How Your City Works is our ongoing series of free workshops for neighborhood leaders. Who is a neighborhood leader? YOU are! Anyone who wants to learn about ways to make their neighborhood a better place to live is a neighborhood leader.  For information about the next Pizza with Planners click here.  

In each session, we pull back the curtain on the process and provide “how-to” steps that can be adapted and utilized in attendees' own neighborhoods. Topics include: 

  • Neighborhood Planning and Development
  • Transportation Planning - including MATA, Bicycling, and Walking, and Active Transportation
  • Economic Development
  • Parks Planning
  • Community Health and Safety 
  • Films on issues related to neighborhoods and planning

Pizza with Planners participants gain a better understanding of how the system works, meet the people they can ask for help and ask questions to better understand how the topics relate to their neighborhoods.

Films: A few times a year, we host a free-to-members film viewing followed by a discussion. In case you missed it in the theater, our film showings, covering a range of topics, are a great way to catch up on movies that address making our neighborhoods more livable. In the past, we've shown films like Bikes vs Cars, Chasing Ice and The Pruitt-Igoe Myth.
