Where in the World is the North Central Texas Section?

The North Central Texas Section of the Texas APA Chapter represents planners in 11 counties in North Texas, and includes the cities of Dallas, Plano, Garland, Frisco, and McKinney.

While Dallas and Collin Counties are largely urban in character, the other nine counties making up our Section are predominately rural in nature, with several towns and small cities located along the interstate highways.  As a section, we need to be mindful to meet the needs of the rural planners in our section, as well as the needs of planners in major metropolitan areas.
