Can community planning make a difference? Through the examination of a variety of county comprehensive plans, class members assess the opportunities and challenges associated with land use planning. Focus is also given to knowing what local residents want for their community and ways to involve county residents in planning for tomorrow. The legal foundations of planning and zoning are reviewed and the key players in the community planning process are identified. Participants gain insight relative to designing a realistic process focused on implementing a county’s comprehensive plan and measuring the difference/contribution the plan makes at the local level.
