Announced at GPSA Meetings

Fall 2014 - PARKing Day

Students involved with GPSA created a temporary protected bike lane using parking spaces along Madison Ave.

Spring 2014 - Albany Rural

Albany Rural Cemetery, a beautiful example of the rural or garden cemetery movement, was founded in 1841 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. We toured the site, known for its pastoral landscping and classic monuments, led by our own Professor John Pipkin.

Spring 2014 - Poughkeepsie

The Walkway over the Hudson is a great example of a reuse project through a public-private partnership. The Walkway used to be an old railroad bridge which was severely damaged by fire in 1974. The Walkway Over the Hudson non-profit group bought the bridge in 1998 and reopened it in 2009 as the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park (and the world's longest pedestrian bridge).

Springside National Historic Site was created in the 1850s by Andrew Jackson Downing, considered by many to be the father of landscape architecture. It is the only park designed by Downing to survive mostly intact, and is currently being restored by the non-profit preservation organization Springside Landscape Restoration.

Fall 2011 - World Town Planning Day

The international organization for World Town Planning Day was founded in 1949 by the late Professor Carlos Maria della Paolera of the University of Buenos Aires to advance public and professional interest in planning, both locally and abroad.

World Town Planning Day is celebrated in more than 30 countries on four continents each November 8th.

It is a special day to give special recognition to the ideals of community planning which bring professional planners and the general public together. World Town Planning Day presents an opportunity to look at planning from a global perspective.
