Why We Need Community-Based Planning
Eve Baron of the Municipal Arts Society Planning Center argues that the City of New York acknowleges community-based plans on paper but not in practice. She writes: "In fact, rather than seeing community-based plans as building blocks in the development of public planning policy, some have regarded community planning and policy planning as separate, even conflicting, interests....Considered both individually and in the aggregate, community-based plans represent some of the best planning being done in the New York City. In many poor areas, it is the only planning efforts."
