Make No Little Plans Without Twitter

Chuck Wolfe suggests five "Burnhamisms" for getting communities inspired and engaged with urban planning, including using social media and video to communicate your message.

Wolfe writes that Burnham's famous "Make no little plans" speech inspired people in his time to create change, and offers a few suggestions for communicating with Americans today, such as:

"Make no introduction of a new initiative without a youtube or vimeo video with catchy music and pedestrians.

Introducing a complete streets program or sidewalk dining? Flip camera in hand, or you lose."
