Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. In this book, Norman Krumholz and John Forester provide the first detailed personal account of a sustained and effective equity-planning practice that influenced urban policy. -- From 1969 to 1979, Cleveland?s city planning staff under Norman Krumholz?s leadership conducted a unique experiment in equity oriented planning. Fighting to defend the public welfare while also assisting the city?s poorest citizens, these planners combined professional competence and political judgment to bring pressing urban issues to the public?s attention. Although frequently embroiled in controversy while serving three different mayors, the Cleveland planners not only survived, but accomplished impressive equity objectives. In this book, Norman Krumholz and John Forester provide the first detailed personal account of a sustained and effective equity-planning practice that influenced urban policy. Krumholz describes the pragmatic equity-planning agenda that his staff pursued during the mayoral administrations of Carl B. Stokes, Ralph J. Perk, and Dennis J. Kucinich. He presents case studies illuminated with rich personal experience, of the Euclid Beach development, the Clark Freeway, and the tax-delinquency and land-banking project that resulted in a change in the State of Ohio?s property law, among others. In the second part of the book, John Forester explores the implications of this experience and the lessons that can be drawn for planning, public management, and administrative practice more generally.

What can planners do to restore equity to their craft? Drawing upon the perspectives of a diverse group of planning experts, Advancing Equity Planning Now places the concepts of fairness and equal access squarely in the center of planning research and practice. Editors Norman Krumholz and Kathryn Wertheim Hexter provide essential resources for city leaders and planners, as well as for students and others, interested in shaping the built environment for a more just world. Advancing Equity Planning Now remind us that equity has always been an integral consideration in the planning profession. The historic roots of that ethical commitment go back more than a century. Yet a trend of growing inequality in America, as well as other recent socio-economic changes that divide the wealthiest from the middle and working classes, challenge the notion that a rising economic tide lifts all boats. When planning becomes mere place-making for elites, urban and regional planners need to return to the fundamentals of their profession. Although they have not always done so, planners are well-positioned to advocate for greater equity in public policies that address the multiple objectives of urban planning including housing, transportation, economic development, and the removal of noxious land uses in neighborhoods. Thanks to generous funding from Cleveland State University, the ebook editions of this book are available as Open Access volumes from Cornell Open (cornellopen.org) and other repositories.

"This energetic and accessible account of progressive successes and failures in a range of American cities in the 1970s and 1980s, including the author's in-depth original research on Boston and Chicago, provides an ideal gateway to the future. Brimming with insights and thoughtful commentary on political strategies, it could be used as a springboard by coming generations of activists and planners."---G. William Domhoff, Unversity of California, Santa Cruz, author of Who Rules America? "While progressives are challenged in finding their voice nationally, the opposite can be said about activists in the halls of local government. Pierre Clavel's important work showcases how activists are successfully expanding the range of voices being heard in the halls of city government and winning campaigns, demonstrating that government can be more than a spectator sitting on the sidelines of economic development. This book is a breath of fresh air for anyone feeling alienated amid the current political moment."---Amy B. Dean, coauthor of A New New Deal: How Regional Activism Will Reshape the American Labor Movement "Pierre Clavel's Activists in City Hall is an important history of progressivism at the city and local government level. His extensive interviews, firsthand observation, and careful use of a mostly ignored literature all make an important contribution to urban studies, political science, urban planning, and history. Clavel carefully considers the role of neighborhood organizations, university intellectuals, and progressive politicians along with the `growth machine,' or usual governing coalition, that they opposed. This is a must-read book for students, scholars, and political activists."---Dick Simpson, University of Illinois at Chicago, author of Inside Urban Politics and The Struggle for Power and Influence in Cities and States "Pierre Clavel has a definite idea of what makes a city progressive: a commitment to popular participation, social movements, and redistribution. In Activists in City Hall, he reflects on important themes including the complex relationship between social movements and city government, the connection between redistribution and popular participation, the role of planners and intellectuals in progressive government, and the long-term and far-reaching effects the progressive administrations of Boston and Chicago had on later governments and other cities. His insights on these topics make this an important book."---Gerald E. Frug, Louis D. Brandeis Professor of Law, Harvard Law School, author of City Making and Coauthor of City Bound "Recent years have seen an increasing interest by both academics and activists in the relationships among social movements, regional organizing, and urban planning for social equity. Full of case study detail, nuanced in its approach, and offering a powerful theoretical frame that weaves together policies, politics, and power, Activists in City Hall is an important contribution to the literature on urban change and progressive planning."---Manuel Pastor Jr., University of Southern California, Coauthor of This Could Be the Start of Something Big

Public policy is made of language. Whether in written or oral form, argument is central to all parts of the policy process. As simple as this insight appears, its implications for policy analysis and planning are profound. Drawing from recent work on language and argumentation and referring to such theorists as Wittgenstein, Habermas, Toulmin, and Foucault, these essays explore the interplay of language, action, and power in both the practice and the theory of policy-making. The contributors, scholars of international renown who range across the theoretical spectrum, emphasize the political nature of the policy planner's work and stress the role of persuasive arguments in practical decision making. Recognizing the rhetorical, communicative character of policy and planning deliberations, they show that policy arguments are necessarily selective, both shaping and being shaped by relations of power. These essays reveal the practices of policy analysts and planners in powerful new ways--as matters of practical argumentation in complex, highly political environments. They also make an important contribution to contemporary debates over postempiricism in the social and policy sciences. Contributors. John S. Dryzek, William N. Dunn, Frank Fischer, John Forester, Maarten Hajer, Patsy Healey, Robert Hoppe, Bruce Jennings, Thomas J. Kaplan, Duncan MacRae, Jr., Martin Rein, Donald Schon, J. A. Throgmorton

In recent years, a formidable gulf has opened up between planning theory and practice. Over the past four decades, planning academics have developed strong theories and created models to accompany and elucidate the planning process. However, many planning practitioners have resisted the notion that theory can play a positive role in the solution of concrete planning problems This volume provides a comprehensive overview of all the main planning theories and models, while also introducing an innovative new model and a set of tools. Modeled on the theories of Mario Bunge this dynamic new approach allows planners to achieve a better understanding of the complexities involved in the role of planners and their impact on the built environment.
"This book explores the promise and limits of bottom-up, grass-roots strategies of community organizing, development, and planning as blueprints for successful revitalization and maintenance of urban neighborhoods. Peterman proposes conditions that need to be met for bottom-up strategies to succeed. Successful neighborhood development depends not only on local actions, but also on the ability of local groups to marshal resources and political will at levels above that of the neighborhood itself. While he supports community-based initiatives, he argues that there are limits to what can be accomplished exclusively at the grassroots level, where most efforts fail"--Back cover.

Over the past fifty years professional understanding of planning has changed markedly. In the past, planning was primarily described as a technical activity involving data collection, analysis, and synthesis of physical plans and supporting policies. Now planning is seen as a much broader set of human activities, encompassing the physical world and also the realm of public and social services. Not surprisingly, planners' discussions of ethics have evolved. Professional ethics is regarded by many planners to be limited to a set of rules of behavior regarding interactions with the public, sources of data, government officials, and one another.This shift is symbolized by the evolution of the labels by which ethics is known: from a circumscribed view of professional ethics to a broader concept of ethics in planning; both of which are discussed in this book. Sue Hendler argues that planners recognize that every act of planning pursues certain human values and is a series of statements about what we take to be right or wrong and what we take to represent the highest priorities of the society.Planning Ethics explores planning within alternative moral theories, including liberalism, communitarianism, environmentalism, and feminism. The contributors illustrate the application of these ethical principles in specific planning contexts encompassing community development, land conversion, waste management, electric power planning, and education planning. This is the next generation of thinking on ethics and planning. It will be a centerpiece of every planning curriculum.
