Empowering Citizens In Community Planning

A new guide, 'Choosing Our Community's Future' offers advice to citizens on how to plan better and 'tame' big box retailers.

"The guidebook also is intended as a helpful companion to participants in design charettes, community planning processes, symposia and seminars on planning issues, education programs for newly-elected officials and civic leaders, or for anyone who wants to get a leg up on development.

Written in everyday language by a veteran journalist and citizen advocate in conjunction with experts in various arenas, the book is easy on the eye, with an appealing format, abundant photographs and illustrative examples."
