Community planning for success


The most successful community-planning efforts involve residents as partners, from the early planning stage through to implementation. Some community leaders hire planners and avoid involving residents for fear that potential conflict will become a barrier to progress. In reality, that conflict can be an asset, providing residents with an opportunity to express their passions about their community, while potentially offering ideas that planners (who usually are not from the community) may have failed to consider without resident involvement.
