On Friday, May 19th, 2017 the LI Section held its annual Arthur Kunz Memorial Scholarship Breakfast at the the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College in Farmingdale.  The event was attended by more than 75 public and private sector planners, engineers and economic development professionals.  The event kicked off with inspiring words from Long Island’s own Maxwell L. Sokol, AICP, President, APA NY Metro Chapter.  We then heard from our four Arthur Kunz Memorial Scholarship recipients on their experience and perspectives from the APA National Planning Conference held in NYC earlier in May.  Two topical panels (Downtown Hicksville Revitalization and Incremental Development) rounded out the morning.  See below for a few photos and panel PowerPoint presentations.  Thank you again to the LI Section Steering Committee and all of our sponsors!  See you next year!
