Planning Homilies


Planning Homilies

The below homilies are excerpts from my book and reflect several observations relating to planning practice.


• Action speaks louder than planning.


• Change is not a choice, but transformation is always an option.


• Citizen pride is a valuable resource.


• Don’t try to control people – involve them instead.


• Good planning starts with an idea or vision of what might be, and every worthy vision or project needs a champion to make it happen.


• Inspiration can take many forms.


• Most people can become a facilitative leader.


• People are the greatest resource for community change.


• Planning helps make connections between people and communities, values and action, status quo and change, and private and public sectors.


• Planning is one of the best ways to engage diverse interests and people in decision-making that results in positive community change.
