Course: URBS 615. Analytical Principles and Practices in Urban Planning (3)
Planners manage resources, such as people, time, money, land, and infrastructure and success depends on the careful identification of scarce resources, constraints and conflicts. Within this context, students learn how to apply important principles to solve urban problems. Rather than examine theory in the abstract, students apply analysis to an array of important issues that planners must deal with: public goods, collective action, housing investment, crime, local taxes, traffic congestion, air pollution, and land use.
