Planning Matters

Date: 2/12/2013

 "A hundred years after we are gone and forgotten those who never heard of us will be living with the results of our action" - Oliver Wendell Holmes, former US Supreme Court Justice


 

This quote from a non-planner struck me as I was listening to Union County Planning Director Shawn McLaughlin speak at a recent Penn State Extension Land Use Decision-making webinar. Shawn discussed the types of communities today’s planners are creating for future generations. Will future generations 30, 40, 50 years from now be praising the work of today’s professional and citizen planners, or will they lament the mess that they inherited in their communities. If planning is done right, it can help a community create a place that future generations will enjoy, a place where people will be proud to live.
