Focus Journal

Focus is the yearly journal of Cal Poly┬┤s City & Regional Planning Department. The journal is dedicated to disseminate departmental and college special events, faculty and scholarly output, and student projects. Its mission is to contribute to keep alumni, professionals, and students informed about recent planning issues and to showcase what the planning profession can offer to the community. Focus has been published since 2004 and in 2006 it received the award of excellence from the Central Coast Session and the Outstanding Journalism award from the California Chapter of the American Planning Association.

Copies of the most recent edition (pictured above) are available for purchase on Amazon.

Copies of the most recent edition, in addition to older editions, may be obtained by calling (805) 756-1315 or emailing Focus at the CRP Department. Individual copies are US$18.00 (plus S&H).
