Plan 425 Section 001

Plan 425 Section 002

This course provides a general introduction to some of the main concepts, challenges, and debates in community and regional planning, both as a professional practice and as a process of social and political intervention in space. At its heart, planning is an action-oriented and problem-oriented activity. As a profession, planners use well-defined tools such as zoning by-laws, citizen engagement, and land-use policies to manage a wide range of issues, including transportation, housing, real estate development, community-building, and the allocation of social services, which affect our everyday lives in communities, cities, and regions. As a general practice by ordinary citizens, planning operates in complex social and political environments that are shaped by local, regional, national, and transnational forces. This course aims to critically engage students with the multiple meanings, practices, and tools that shape the field of community and regional planning.
