9781597265522: Community Planning: An Introduction to the Comprehensive Plan, Second Edition

This book introduces community planning as practiced in the United States, focusing on the comprehensive plan. Sometimes known by other names—especially master plan or general plan—the type of plan described here is the predominant form of general governmental planning in the U.S. Although many government agencies make plans for their own programs or facilities, the comprehensive plan is the only planning document that considers multiple programs and that accounts for activities on all land located within the planning area, including both public and private property.
 
Written by a former president of the American Planning Association, Community Planning is thorough, specific, and timely. It addresses such important contemporary issues as sustainability, walkable communities, the role of urban design in public safety, changes in housing needs for a changing population, and multi-modal transportation planning. Unlike competing books, it addresses all of these topics in the context of the local comprehensive plan.
 
There is a broad audience for this book: planning students, practicing planners, and individual citizens who want to better understand local planning and land use controls. Boxes at the end of each chapter explain how professional planners and individual citizens, respectively, typically engage the issues addressed in the chapter. For all readers, Community Planning provides a pragmatic view of the comprehensive plan, clearly explained by a respected authority.

Eric Kelly is a professor of urban planning at Ball State University. He is a past president of the American Planning Association and has more than thirty years of experience consulting with local governments in thirty-five states.

Review:

"Eric Damian Kelly's Community Planning, Second Edition is nothing less than a master work planning practice. Whether you are a student or seasoned pro, you absolutely cannot be withou it. Kelly goes well beyond the conventional land use perspective in describing the formulation of comprehensive plans and addressing all plan elements and how they fit together. Moreover, he teases out implementation issues in evey chapter, propelling the reader from analysis to action. Finally there is always an ethical backdrop in this book, distinguishing it from others in the field. Kelly reminds us that we are commanded to 'replenish the earth' as a basic concept in sustainability—wise advice, like everything in this magnificent text." (Stuart Meck , Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, Rutgers University)
