Abstract or Summary
  • This Primer is intended to serve Extension personnel and community leaders as they work in local communities facing decisions with long-range implications. Some communities may engage in long-range planning without any compelling reason to do so, except that they believe it is a good thing to do. More communities will need to face current issues with long-range implications. For example, an industrial firm may wish to irreversibly alter the local landscape, an urban expansion may threaten a historic building, or a proposed school consolidation plan may result in losing the local school and busing the local children long distances. When decisions like this must be faced, no easy answers or “cookbook” formulas apply. Each situation is different, including the process used to arrive at a decision. Yet this primer is based on the assumption that certain principles and planning procedures are helpful in such circumstances. This primer is not intended for an ambitious educational program involving large numbers. Rather, it is designed to help local groups build consensus on decisions likely to affect the direction their community takes over time. Principles and general information are found early in the primer, followed by examples and problems. The purpose of both is to stimulate group discussion in a workshop setting. As you read through the primer, group discussion and deliberation can illuminate the questions you formulate.
