Community Involvement and Communication in Planning

Online
Planners use zoning plans, spatial data, and population projections to design land use plans and revitalize physical spaces. Planners decisions can have important and long-lasting impacts on many people. Municipal planners often confront conflict, often about deeply controversial issues.  Elected officials, civil servants and professional experts have long played an important role in how these decisions are made, but advocacy organizations, civil society groups and individual activists have become increasingly effective at influencing decision-making in the public sphere. This means that the role of planners is often to determine how diverse groups of people can effectively make decisions about the places and spaces they seek to improve? This course teaches students how to design and implement participatory planning processes in a democratic context.
