Summary

In comprehensive planning, the community's goals and objectives are identified and developed; its assets and liabilities are studied and evaluated; and its resources are used to achieve its goals and objectives. Citizen participation in the planning process must be an enlightened participation. Some of the methods that may be used for citizen education are: newspaper, radio, television, planning publications, public meetings, planning exhibits and tours, and collaborative planning. Findings of a study made to determine the importance and state of citizen participation and education in Syracuse, N. Y. and vicinity are discussed from the viewpoints of mass media, public planners at state, county and city levels of government, and of a private planning consultant. The consensus of opinion is that citizens, at all levels of society, are important directly and indirectly in the planning process; that a vigorous educational program involving a variety of approaches is both feasible and essential in a successful planning program; and that the professional planner is central to the success of planning as an initiator and sustainer of activity designed to educate the legislator and citizen alike. A list of literature cited is given, and appendixes present a precis of the MIDNY project and a sample letter and questionnaire. (DB)
