Citizen Involvement in Land Use Governance: Issues and Methods.
Rosenbaum, Nelson M.
This book analyzes a number of issues related to citizen involvement in land-use planning. Based on this analysis, the author recommends a set of organizational principles that can be utilized to develop an integrated, coherent citizen involvement program. The core of the study is a review of several major program design issues that political leaders and citizens should address in adopting basic organizational principles to particular circumstances. The study continues with an examination of techniques and methods for implementing a citizen involvement program, and concludes with an analysis of the overall costs and benefits of citizen involvement in governmental decision-making. Although the author is mainly concerned with involving citizens in land-use planning, the principles and procedures he outlines also may be applied to stimulating citizen involvement for other purposes as well.
