Master plans are complex documents, meant to guide a community’s development for perhaps a generation. They are also moving targets—assembling lots of information, balancing conflicting positions and goals, and changing as they move through the planning process.
In this course you’ll learn how to approach a master plan—starting with concept development and community voice, and finishing with the mechanics of organizing and expressing ideas.
At the end of this course, you will understand the purpose of a master plan, the planners’ responsibility as a writer and advocate, how to balance stakeholders’ positions and community policies, and how to sort and present information.
