Schools and Comprehensive Urban Planning.
Sandberg, John, Ed.
Four education experts stress the need to plan urban communities of the future that will guarantee the quality of human existence. John Sandberg emphasizes the desirability of cooperation among all planning agencies, and presents guidelines to aid in comprehensive urban planning. McAbee, Bottomly, and McCloskey list the qualities of human existence they feel planners must treat as objectives. According to these experts, urban communities must be designed to meet the physical, social, educational, and aesthetic needs of people, who must have decent environments to participate productively in decisions about their futures. Kenneth Hansen reviews some models of planning and implementation, such as systems approaches, and concludes that any planning model must consider priorities, alternatives, means, and implementation. Lyndon Musold concludes the document with guidelines for the development of an information system to be used in community planning. (RA)
