Overview

APA's popular primer for citizens is all new! For decades, planning officials and engaged citizens have relied on The Citizen's Guide to Planning for a better understanding of the basics of planning. Now, Duerksen, Dale, and Elliott have remade this perennial bestseller into a 21st-century guide for anyone who wants to make his or her community a better place.

This book describes the land-use planning process, the key players in that process, and the legal framework in which decisions are made. The authors advocate principles and disciplines that will help those involved in the process make good decisions. In easy-to-understand language, they offer nuts-and-bolts information about different types of plans and how they are implemented. Chapters cover the goals and values of planning, the history of planning, the different people and organizations involved, the creation and implementation of a comprehensive plan, sustainability, the application review process, and legal and ethical questions.

This is a must-read book for any planning commissioner, official, or engaged citizen.
