Identifying Issues

Buildings Photo

Local planning and zoning officials face difficult issues, such as congestion, unfettered growth, and inner-city decay. As land use planning and regulation issues and the tools and techniques available to address them have become more complex, the need for improved decision making, and increased awareness of and familiarity with those tools, has increased. Through the use of models, examples, field work, exercises, and reference materials, American Citizen Planner is working to build a citizenry that is well educated on land use issues and that knows how to champion positive change.
