Course Description

Some planners deal with long-range planning and some are more involved in day-to-day planning activities, especially in land use and permitting. Planners who work in transportation and public works projects must know how to translate visionary work completed at a larger spatial scale to real, implementable projects. In my first course, we discussed how to scope a planning study. In this course, we will learn how to take projects from the planning study stage into well-scoped and funding-ready implementation projects.
