City planners and officials from across California are slated to descend on Anaheim starting Saturday for a large statewide conference.

The American Planning Association’s California Annual Conference runs from Saturday Sept. 13 through Tuesday Sept. 16 at the Disneyland Hotel.

Panel discussions include re-imagining transportation corridors to have them accommodate people, parks, cyclists and transit; as well as a panel on public private partnerships, hosted by Great Park officials with the city of Irvine and FivePoint Communities officials.

A bicycle tour of the Santa Ana River trail and bikeway is also scheduled with county trail coordinator Jeff Dickman, former county Supervisor Bill Campbell, Patricia Lock Dawson of the Santa Ana River Trail and Parkway Partnership and others.
