Gold Coast Section

The Gold Coast Section serves a large roster of planning professionals in South Florida. We are an active group, with regular happy hours and networking mixers. We meet monthly to discuss issues of relevance to the local region, from interests in advocacy, to support for new generation planners, to annual planning awards. The area is the most dense and intense in the Southeastern United States. The area is bordered by the Everglades to the west, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and, a this section includes several islands (the Florida Keys!). Gold Coast planning professionals work with several of this generation's most complex issues.

Come and join us and explore all the wonders of South Florida and work on the planning issues of our time! Come by here often—we will post our updates here for your convenience. If you have specific questions, send us an email and someone will get back to you shortly.

Join Gold Coast Section's member-only platform, the Gold Coast Planning Forum! This will allow us to share ideas, articles, and knowledge. It will allow us to communicate in a member-only environment designed to advance our knowledge of the planning practice in South Florida and assist us in our projects and day-to-day tasks in our profession.
