Abstract
  • Planning programs may fail to accomplish their goals and objectives because they do not meet the needs of the population for which they are designed. Planners may be of different socioeconomic, regional, or ethnic backgrounds from those for whom they plan. They may perceive and evaluate important aspects of the environment differently from their clients. For these reasons, individuals who will be living and working in the environment to be designed or modified by planners should be encouraged to provide input into the development of plans which will affect their activities and enterprises. A means of assessing needs and values of the community ought to be incorporated into planning projects.
