Creating Planning Documents


This guide to creating high-quality planning documents was developed by Design Workshop as part of the American Planning Association Planning Advisory Services (PAS) Report series, which publishes quarterly on current issues and innovative practices. The recommendations, which began as an internal handbook for the staff, will be of value to anyone engaged in a planning effort and responsible for providing content for a planning document—whether a staff member of a municipal planning department, a planning consultant, or a stakeholder. Design Workshop realized that the planning profession would benefit from a common industry standard for planning documents.
