Join the Kansas Chapter of the American Planning Association in Leavenworth County on Friday April 21st for the 2017 Spring Symposium! This year we will focus on agritourism businesses, the opportunities they create for local economies, and the challenges that can arise for planning departments when they become popular destinations. We will tour three locations that represent common agritourism activities, and programming will include a discussion of the subject including the perspectives of both business operators and local officials.
