Search the internet for a copy of a current comprehensive plan for a city of your choice. Make sure it is the city’s comprehensive (general) plan. Include a citation for this source (including internet link) in your report.
After examining the comprehensive plan, write an essay that clearly addresses the following:
–Briefly describe the selected city in a short introductory paragraph.
–Briefly describe the plan’s time horizon, approval process, and various components.
–Critically analyze each of the following:
–How clearly are the current and (projected) future conditions of the city presented in the plan?
–How clearly are the goals of the plan presented? How are the goals similar to (and different from) the eight common goals of comprehensive planning outlined in class?
–How clearly do the various components or strategies of the plan connect to the goals?
–What role did public participation appear to play in the planning process?
Your written report should be roughly 2-3 single-spaced pages in length, with a space between paragraphs. Your report must be structured using the following headings and subheadings:
Critical Analysis of Plan
Current and Future Conditions
Connection to Goals
