A look back at...


FLiP 2019 

plan'ning noun

The activity or profession of determining the future physical arrangement or condition of a community. Planning, also called urban planning or city and regional planning, is a dynamic profession that works to improve the welfare of people and their communities by creating more convenient, equitable, healthful, efficient, and attractive places for present and future generations. Planning helps communities envision their future and find the right balance of new development, essential services, environmental protection, and innovative change.

Think planning is a career in which you might be interested? Then FLiP 2019 is for you!

Designed as an opportunity for high school students to explore urban planning as a potential career, FLiP offers a broad exposure to planning from public and private sector perspectives across many fields. In its second year, the annual FLiP program expanded from nine to eighteen students and from a two-day to a three-day intensive program. In our 3rd year, FLiP will accept 21 students for a four-day program.

FLiP 2019 is a four-day program with 21 students invited to participate. Hillsborough County School District students in good standing in grades 9, 10, or 11 may apply. Students who are currently seniors will be considered only if space is available. Students who reside in Hillsborough County attending private school may also apply.
