Mitchell Silver-American Planning Association President

Mitchell Silver, President of the American Planning Association, AICP Certified and Chief Planning and Development Officer and Director, Department of City Planning for the City of Raleigh, NC

I wanted to share with you all information about someone I look up to as a young urban policy junkie and an African American. I met Mr. Silver once at a neighborhood planning conference and was blown away by his enthusiasm for the field. I referenced him in a previous post: http://queeninthequeencity.tumblr.com/search/planning  

Mitchell is an award-winning planner with over 25 years of experience. He is nationally recognized for his leadership in the planning profession and his contributions to contemporary planning issues. He specializes in comprehensive planning, land use planning and implementation strategies. Before coming to Raleigh in 2005, Mitchell had worked as Policy and Planning Director in New York City, a Principal of a New York City-based planning firm, a Town Manager in New Jersey and Deputy Planning Director in Washington, DC.
