Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on March 31, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This guide is a very practical for citizens who want to begin the neighborhood planning process. It provides step by step procedures on how to get started and what to expect. It begins with an introduction to neighbhorhood planning and why it is important. It then goes on to describe a seven step planning process that begins with data collection and ends with implementation. Though somewhat vague, there is information on how to collect and interpret data, how to pinpoint issues, and how to set goals. The descriptions are easy to read and practical for the layman, but the professional planner might find the reading a little to "thin". The appendix contains a very useful example of a citizen survey and specifics on how to perform a goal setting exercise. Overall, Jones uses easy to understand everyday language to describe what can be a complex and intimidating process. Every neighborhood group should have a copy in their office!

By A Customer on October 19, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This book offers good advice to local community groups, but it is in need of a serious update. Although it is targeted to grassroots groups, it is often used by people in planning practice. Given the juvinile content of the book, and the limited consideration of current methodological standards and technology, it could result in a marginalization of citizens groups and practical planning efforts directed at them. Why do so many authors of these types of books think that citizens are stupid? Why do so many authors of these types of books think that freehand drawings are common in the urban planning profession? Why do so many authors of these books give examples of bad survey methodology to citizens? Obviously they don't understand that citizens are smart, and they are capable of presenting cogent proposals to public officials. Unfortunately, this book doesn't expose citizens to the techniques to make that possible.
