For decades community activists, bureaucrats, and even elected officials have consulted the pages ofThe Citizen's Guide to Planningfor solutions to their planning problems. Now in its fourth edition, the volume has been completely rewritten for the twenty-first century with new chapters that address the challenges of planning for a sustainable world.   Like its predecessors this new edition, aimed at nonprofessionals, is a broad-ranging general introduction to the field of planning. The volume's easy-to-read language and organization make it ideal for answering specific questions as they arise in meetings. Authors Duerksen, Dale, and Elliott have maintained favorite sections--such as the list of key planning law cases and the full text of APA ethical considerations--and provided readers with new chapters emphasizing energy conservation, energy generation, and land efficiency. This volume is ideal for citizen activists wanting to influence planning decisions in their communities, citizens appointed to planning boards, and newly elected officials facing difficult planning-related decisions.
