Planetizen published its first story, by Anthony Downs, on August 1, 2000. The first Planetizen server ran on a used desktop computer connected to a telephone line in Chris’s house, and the site published 3-4 stories a day.

Within months, thousands were reading, and Planetizen expanded to cover news throughout California. By 2003, Planetizen contributors were submitting news from across the country, capturing the growing interest in the Internet and the need for an online community interested in planning.

Today, Planetizen reaches 90% of the U.S. urban planning community through news, editorial, job postings, online courses, books, and product sales. But one thing hasn’t changed: We are always looking for new ways to advance the field and work for healthier, more prosperous communities.

the mission of Planetizen Press is to provide innovative resources for students and professionals in the field.

Planetizen is the go-to news and information site for the urban planning, design, and development community. With a steady stream of fresh, relevant stories every day, our readers check in regularly to get the latest news on transportation, architecture, infrastructure, housing, economic development, and urban design. Our readers follow our influential bloggers and read original features from leaders in the field.


Publications
The Planetizen Press catalog currently includes a variety of titles available at the Planetizen Store.

Submissions
Planetizen Press accepts manuscripts for consideration from authors and opinion leaders. We favor manuscripts that are near completion on the subjects Planetizen covers on a regular basis:

  • Urban and regional planning and land use
  • Transportation and transit
  • Environmental issues
  • Energy and infrastructure
  • Historic preservation
  • Landscape architecture
  • Urban planning technology
  • Planning-related humor


We are open to ideas ranging from extended academic papers to popular non-fiction, like The Tipping Point. Our goal is to encourage debate and spread knowledge of the concepts and goals of urban planning. However, we are primarily interested in near-finished manuscripts. We are not seeking to develop books with authors from scratch.
