|Title:||Urban Development: The Logic of Making Plans|
|Authors:||Hopkins, Lewis D.|
|Description:||Urban planning is used loosely to refer to intentional interventions in the urban development process, usually by local government. The term “plan- ning” thus subsumes a variety of mechanisms that are in fact quite distinct: regulation, collective choice, organizational design, market correction, cit- izen participation, and public sector action. Plans, more narrowly deﬁned, have logic and functions that are distinct from each of these other mech- anisms, but related to each of them. The objective of this book is to set out the logic of how plans work and how they relate to other types of intentional actions in urban development. Clarity about how plans work leads to more reasonable expectations of what plans can accomplish and more care f u l choices about when to make plans, about what, for whom, and how.|
