Summary
Those who fail to plan, plan to fail, the adage goes. Enter Planning and Community Development, which provides a general introduction to planning, explains the elements of the essential comprehensive plan, and describes the tools of implementation. It uses practical examples and case studies from across North America. Comprehensive in scope, this is an ideal "first book on planning" for students and practitioners needing to understand the full range of complex interactions related to their work, lay planners for whom it will serve as a reference on planning topics and policies, local officials who wish to understand the role of planning in government, and individuals who want to become involved in the planning of their communities. The book links planning issues with planning practice. It ranges from policies and programs to an examination of techniques and practical case studies. A special feature is the continuing case study of Rivertown, a fictitious community used for community planning exercises. This innovative simulation utilizes information from topics presented in the text and allows readers to interact with information as they fulfill the role of a local planner. --Book Jacket
