Since the earliest settlements, people have deliberated the issues that affect their future together. Making Community Design Work shows how planners can guide the process toward effective decision making and beneficial community design.

This well-crafted book distills decades of community design experience into a sound conceptual framework of value to practicing planners as well as planning students. Umut Toker covers a broad range of planning scales and introduces field-tested tools for participatory decision making at regional, city, community, and site-specific levels.

To succeed, any planning project must address both the physical space and its users. From setting goals to evaluating results, Making Community Design Work helps planners navigate the process of creating environments that meet the needs of the people they serve.

About the Author:

Umut Toker is assistant professor of city and regional planning in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at California Polytechnic State University.

Review:

"MAKING COMMUNITY DESIGN WORK is a direct response to an international movement aimed at giving people a voice in shaping their future environment. This is a practical "must have" tool for planners, designers, students, and other related professionals, community organizations, and workshop facilitators everywhere. The book outlines "off-the-shelf" workable methods illustrated by informative case studies. It integrates tools and processes that help to deepen the public conversation. It is equally valuable in shaping the next generation of designers and planners in understanding effective participation processes."

--Henry Sanoff, Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Architecture, North Carolina State University
