Lisa Wong shares insight into the Equipt to Innovate survey, published by Governing and Living Cities, which measures elements of a concept described as "dynamic planning."
"The survey measures a number of important elements that plans should follow: be evidence based, achieve measurable impact, link to strategic goals, actively use stakeholder input, actively use resident input, be transparent, and coordinate with other levels of government," explains Wong.
According to the survey, Las Vegas is a top performer of dynamic planning, "due in part to its 10-year strategic plan called City by Design." A key component in the success of the City by Design strategic plan is its inclusion of a mobility plan. Wong explains in more detail why a mobility plan is so essential to dynamic planning.
