Course: URBS 640. Seminar in Planning for Communities and Local Economic Development (3)
This course focuses on the study of human behavior as it is affected by basic human needs and urban conditions. Special attention will be given to: (1) the manner in which local neighborhoods and communities are integrated into the planning process and how needs are articulated; and (2) the manner in which local economic development can be affected by the planning process and by the integration of community participation. Supporting field trips and discussions with planners and project managers are planned.
