In 1986, Larry Paulozzi created the first Town Planner for a couple of communities in Cleveland, Ohio. The calendar became a tool that allowed the families in a community to have a one stop resource guide to all the information and events that occur daily. The creation also allowed business owners more direct access to families and offered them a chance to have their message or offer be on display for 365 days a year at a cost of pennies per household.
This concept has continued to grow over the years building the Town Planner brand. Today our publishers distribute the Town Planner community calendar to over 4,000,000 households nationwide.
