Regional Planning Expert Timothy Brennan to Speak April 16

Timothy W. Brennan

"Shaping a Livable Future: Putting Our Brakes on Sprawl" will be the subject of a talk by Timothy W. Brennan, executive director of the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC), on Tuesday, April 16, at 7 pm in Gamble Auditorium. Brennan, who has been studying local growth and development for almost thirty years, will discuss connections between the way the valley has developed and the environmental problems it now faces. He will also briefly describe the work of the PVPC, which is one of only thirteen such designated public regional planning agencies in the commonwealth, serving its second-largest planning region. The public is invited to bring questions and concerns for a comment and discussion period after the talk. The event is part of A Sense of Place: At Home in the Connecticut River Valley, a continuing lecture series sponsored by the Center for Environmental Literacy (CEL). The popular lecture series, begun last year, highlights and explores special places and open spaces in the valley.

Brennan joined the PVPC in 1973 and since 1980 has served as the agency’s executive director. He currently serves as the chair of the nationwide Institute for the Regional Community and is active in many other organizations, including the National Association of Regional Councils, the Massachusetts Association of Regional Planning Agencies, the New England Association of Regional Councils and the Hartford-Springfield Economic Partnership. He is also an adjunct faculty member of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning at the University of Massachusetts.
