The AIA Brooklyn Urban Planning Committee is a committee that is concerned with the local community. Through various activities and participating with local community groups, organizations and government offices – the AIA Brooklyn Urban Planning Committee is interested in the development of our local community and how it affects us as residents as well as Architects.
