  • This special report on the future of planning is a direct response to the wave of self-examination now underway for planning practitioners, academics and community groups. The young decade's tides of budget slashing, regulation cutting and reorganization have led many to reassess the mission of planning, planners' identities and approaches planners use to achieve their goals. Carolina Planning has asked a number of noted practitioners and academics in various fields of planning to sketch some impressions about planning in this decade. In the following report, the contributors view recent trends in substantive areas of planning practice, discuss the roles planners may ploy and the approaches planners may be taking. One major thread running through the pieces is the need for strong planning in a period of shrinking resources. Includes the following: Community Organizing, Self-Help, and Planning in the Eighties; Environmental Planning in the Eighties; Neighborhood Planning in the Eighties; Transportation Planning in the Eighties; Public Participation in the Eighties; North Carolina's Lead Regional Organizations in the Eighties; Human Services Planning in the Eighties
